Image prompt: Theme Thursday


No, don’t.

Don’t try to
tie me
into a knot.

I know both
what you said
and what you meant
what you intended
but did not say.

 I will not
fall for
or false promises
your sinuous form makes.

 So, leave me alone
don’t waste
your time
and mine.

 No matter
how hard you try
I will not
do as you say.
