//Please Be Literal

Oh the hundreds of writings I’ve read

They seem to mean something that’s not in my head

Why am I so lost?

 

System.out.println(theme);

Why am I not saying anything?

Some method I didn’t call

Is causing my tears to fall

Who just erased my code?

 

The horrid frustration, the tears

They’ve lasted through all the years

Why is this so hard?

 

printOutWhatIsTone();

This is something I should have known!

Can not compute.

Can not compile.

Did I not declare a variable?

 

Of course, dear, you’ll get it someday.

I think I hear sarcasm in the words they don’t say.

Will I ever understand?

 

boolean iDontKnow = true;

What it means to say one’s bleeding blue.

figurative;

Compile.

Cannot find symbol – variable figurative

 

I’m a blank page when it comes to metaphors.

I don’t understand what the connections are for.

Why is it so unclear?

 

String relationshipIsWhat;

I can’t even ask my gut.

John is being friendly.

No, John is being supportive.

Why can’t I feel anything?

 

She passed by Relationship, whom she saw now and then.

Frosty or indifferent? They kept their distance to the end.

Why can’t it be said straight out?

 

String[] = {“What”, “Does”, “This”, “Represent”, “?”};

I can’t even tell you what that symbol meant.

river != river;

bird != bird;

What does that even mean?

 

The cold cardboard box lay in a corner, empty.

It shed a tear, for full was what it wished to be.

Why are there even symbols?

 

public String meaning()

{

Something!

Anything!
}

Missing return statement!

C-can-Can’t Compyoooooooot.

 

FRYING!!!
