You confuse me for lonely,
when I am not lonely, nor do I
need protection to walk among you,
as though Ownership is a badge of honor
bestowed like a gift or an anklet, or a bell
on the wrist to mark someone's
beloved, or prize, or trinket...
You confuse me for something Else
that will wear a label, fit a pattern,
but I assure you, I will not.
I am a cold thing that sees in darkness,
that warms sometimes in a closed hand
but can't be held for long. You think
you're the one who can change me
but men crack the sky like lightning,
flash twice and then are gone.
My steps are as steady as Death,
even when I am sleeping.
You confuse me for lonely,
but I am alright.
You will be okay, too.
| being made property is BS. no one is anothers property. we may all fit some kind of pattern, but rarely the ones others want of us. you ended on a soft note. i was expecting a one-two punch. i guess that means you don't fit the pattern i expected either. i guess the thing is to know who we are and forget the molds others make for us. i guess i think we all form SOME KIND of pattern. but it doesn't really matter. it's not really who we are.||| Posted on 2014-06-18 00:00:00 | by cornonthekob | [ Reply to This ] || I learned when I was young that women will not be relegated to the role of subservient chattel. Even when they live it they don't really (deep down) feel that way. The depths of their darkness needs to be appreciated and fostered if you really want to touch them. Men resemble the apex axis crux while women resemble infinity with a wrapper. You need my lightening strikes twice like I need your steady steps. If that means I must realize I'm a little bit lonely I can be okay with that.|
PS: this infers that perhaps you too are a little bit lonely!!!

isn't really the question
it's the closure of a synapse
a reflexive response
to another conundrum
a similar speed bump
on a path full of pauses
onward we grow...

you know, i dated this guy for 10 weeks and he wanted me to get a tattoo that i was his property. ha!
i think not!
i have realized (and maybe it will be my downfall into cat lady living) that i refuse to be shaped and molded or held too tightly by anyone.
as well, my stubborn nature would be this - the moment someone tells me what NOT to do.... i do it.
has gotten me in trouble my whole entire life.
but yes... there are parts of this that i can totally relate to.
and the way you write it.... well yup. i totally get it.
