Ignoring you …


There was a time when I believed 

if i could just be 

what you wanted

from me 

then i would be “alright”…

til i heard another time

 fluttering crisp where thorns bloom on sands

and pastels frost  salty petals 

and pearls uncork perfumes of beach roses 

which  float somewhere above 

“alright”

and that is when i remembered you 

and what you wanted from me 

so i spread out my towel…

and just ignored you

 for a really 

long 

time

  1. Kae, this speaks powerfully to me of that inner (inherent?) need to seek to satisfy the wants and needs of others that I be this or that (and, truth be told, in most cases in my life when I sought to do this, I believe I was responding more to what I perceived the other desired, which may or may not have been largely a reflection of what and who I wished I was, but was not!). You also speak to my coming, growing awareness and acceptance of who I am and am becoming. Thanks for this…and for you. Love and peace
