what I allow

Posted: May 2, 2015 in Uncategorized

nobody gets nothing

nobody understands

nobody cares enough to make a difference

          not that they don’t want to just that they can’t


nobody occupies the same space

nobody lives in my place

nobody feels the same way about anything

nobody knows what I know

nobody goes where I go

          nowhere is the one place we all share


nobody’s seen what I’ve seen

nobody’s been what I’ve been



gets me likes me loves me chooses me misses me caresses me feeds me feels me cures me completes me conquers me dares me supports me believes me knows me


nobody’s responsible for any of this but me


nobody’s to blame

for my shame my loneliness my anger my depletion my gloom my doom my failure my fear my mediocrity my cowardice my coldness my apartness


nobody can do anything for me

nobody can do anything to me


          but what I allow

    I still and always will like your hugs and sarcasm


  4. Rose Red says:

    good stuff

    well there’s a stake in the ground!

    And what’s more, nobody can tell me why there’s such a thing as grocery store sushi. What could be worse? >
