knowing what it's not


Jun 1, 2010

It's taken a long time
to understand what this is not,

because I scripted a fairy tale
where you were a prince
gallant, kind and courageous

and I was gentler princess
strong enough to stand alone
willing to walk forward on my own

believing that someday
together we might thrive

but as you turned your head in my direction
and looked squarely in my eyes
clearly showing me what you needed from me,
and only what you desired,

I saw my reflection and heard my voice
and found my feet upon a path
I've tread before

realizing that yet again,
there is not enough me in this
and the terms are not my own

and that this is not
any kind of love
I want.
