Madame Blossom's Book of Poems

Tuesday, May 19, 2009


Most of the time, when a man says 'nothing' to the question of what he is thinking about, he is not telling the literal truth.

Surely, if a person is quiet and looking far, perhaps at the ocean or the sunset or the mountains or hills - there MUST be SOMETHING in his mind - even if it is something as mundane as 'I wonder how high that hill is, compared to the block I'm staying in..'

The truest answer would be 'It's nothing that I think might interest you. It is too weird and/or too complicated and/or too long to put into words. It may even sound absurd to you, and I don't want you to judge me with what I'm thinking about, so let's just not talk about what I was thinking about.'

'Nothing', to that question, is not literal. 'Nothing', is just the abbreviation to a whole lot of reasons to why the thought will not or should not be shared.

Are you implying that this phenomena only happen to man?

What about women? Do they ever encounter such a situation?

Or, what would their response be if they're met with such situations?
