There's not much to say about me really. I love to write and read poetry, but have no great achievements to add.
My Intention It begins a tight-formed bud over which I have total control Every line every detail I fashion conscious manifestation It is mine and I hold it close, obsessively tending it protecting it from prying eyes and hands and other appendages (You said I hold my cards close to my chest - I see now it was for good reason. I'm not guilty) When I am ready (Yes, me, in my time) I share, but not with just anyone, (I've got your number now) allowing a little light, some tears a smile Reception (ah, so this is how it feels to be witnessed, held) the petals loosen Somewhat so pretty. I think, perhaps, this one can see me? Ooh scary I retreat a little (frightened child, big eyes peeking from behind a doorframe - are you really not going to hurt me?) But you do inadvertently without malice being hu-man And I stop leaning on you Almost a relief You're not God and the petals loosen some more I am the one I've been waiting for face open to the sun (ah, so this is how it feels to be loved)
