I don’t want

Want or do not

I don’t want anyone to see
I don’t want anyone to hear
Sometimes I don’t want anyone
Sometimes I need so profoundly
It pains me to admit.

I feel somehow swindled
Without observing all the steps
Of the deception

The embarrassment is mine to own
One of several possessions
I’d rather wished they’d taken.

...and um, yeah, maybe i looked like that at 23, so no... not me...


  1. Haha, I never looked like that - not even in female form.
    I always tell you how human your writing is. You have a way of writing through your unique challenges in a way that universalizes (nor sure if that's a word, but there's no red squiggly, so I guess it works) the human condition.
    Love you, friend.

  2. Short but good, it could apply to so many situations in life. that second para in particular is often how I feel about life, thinking, did I miss a step somewhere?
