tilly

another poem (am on a roll)

Recommended Posts

tilly

Used to spend hours counting the flowers

Used to spend days in an inward gaze

Used to have space, my own special place

Used to have time.

Used to be me.

But then I loved and followed

and my inner self was swallowed

by a bigger need

that I had to feed

So now I have to sit here, and fit here

and rise and organise how I feel

to what he says is important and real.

So if he's sad, then I must leave him be

If he's mad, I must try not to be me.

If he's amorous, then I must submit

Whatever he's feeling, I must fit.

Trying to suppress, to be more or less

to be however he needs me to be

screaming inside 'let me be me!'

For if I don't fit, and submit

then I'm selfish and cruel, and he's a fool

and he makes me Bad, cos he's sad and mad

because of me

Just let me be!

I need space

My lonely place

I need NEED to be me

I need to be free

and to be loved exactly as I am

to be loved for me

I wish he could see.

It is his flaw.
