Sugar and Salt

You said, during breakfast, that life was different than it was when we met.
You said things are better, days are simpler and life is sweeter.

I happen to disagree. Life is different, but it is not better.
Days are long and life seems like it is going too fast to be sweet.

The difference, you said, is all in how you see things.

The difference, I said, is like saying, without tasting,
which is sugar and which is salt.
