not us

Lee Plaza Hotel, Detroit, photo by Bonnie Beechler ( via Magpie Tales )
ah, you were not
my lighthouse
shining up
from the bottom of a well

nor was i
your brave daisy
bursting through
suffocating pavement

we were not
conjoined hearts, cores
livers, kidneys 
or even onions

and we won’t ever be
dreaming big
or staying strong
together as old souls

so what…
we’re not
kitchen cliches or 
refrigerator door metaphors

you are you
i am me
and we do get along

  1. Very cool. I think it is pretty hard to find a person with whom one can get along immaculately, and if one finds one it is a treasure indeed!

  2. its best to know what you are not…and if each lives a riched life seperately…better to go that route than try to force it together and leave both miserable…just saying…

Say something!
