Back to Poetry Back to Sipsydoodle!

Sometimes I am not me

I am some perfect being
beyond reproach, adored
on all sides with glinty-
toothed smiles to greet
me, perfectly open
and patient, moi,
adept and assured,
I, humble and prostrate
and Godly and human
and strong in my frailty,
humility, even toiling
without futility, I
am a being who
holds everything and
is open to everyone
yet has nothing and
needs nothing and
wants only from
someone exactly who
and what they are
at any given moment.
