I’m patient like that.
Where others will demand and hold you to account,
I know vulnerability waits for a soul to be ripe with sincerity before it spreads itself,
before it undresses.
I know that if I bottle my anxiety and show a face of indifference,
I run the risk of losing many,
but the ones that see with the eye of their heart also know me from a thousand thousands.
I’m patient like that,
because I know where I’m from and how I’ve travelled to be here is beyond just forty two years of worldly existence.
I’m not just matter and that’s what matters,
but I never let that matter to the point that it’s all that matters.
We matter said no one of intelligence and worth except who think their lives are but a series of what people owe them.
I’m still patient for them.
Waiting for their poems to undo themselves.
I’m always a poem away from myself.
I call your beauty and raise you ugliness.
Alone is still the best
Especially when it feels like you’re being chewed on,
and I’m no morsel for fetishes,
not especially for men of ingratitude,
nor women of lust.

You can’t double tap or swipe this into existence.
There is a method,
there is a way,
there’s the grueling of loneliness,
when you have so much to say.
A cure is not required,
when the world is accustomed to hyper sanity,
free me then,
unshackle me from society’s insistence,
that I must breathe like you,
if im accustomed to holding my breath,
and drowning in solitude,
your hyper sanity is hyper sanitised,
and I’m a vagabond of self inflicted loneliness.
How do you weave the tapestry of gratitude into your heart so that your limbs lead the way?
I could answer, but answering would be worse!
Gratitude sitting in the mind,
is lesser than;
gratitude sitting in your heart;
is lesser than gratitude sitting in your limbs;
is lesser than gratitude acted out.
Coming to terms,
may mean ignoring your mind,
to settle your heart,
slowing your heart,
to soothe your soul,
soothing your soul,
doesn’t mean mending it,
it just means,
accepting it for what it is.
