Then & Now: Two Poems

Hmmm…found this today in old files…I’ve come a long way, !

I am She

I am She
sits alone
Just be in a crowded place
with people don't know her

I am She

is old and wise
but not wise enough
see the truth

I am She

the odd duck
in the neighborhood bar
trying hard hold on
live in the moment
without being seen

I am She

that nobody knows
yet everyone recognizes
when the music starts
she closes her eyes,
feels the rhythm
coursing through her blood
fists open then close the beat
that pulsing primal flood
screaming “move! Move! MOVE!
Move dammit!”
Shake that thing,
That thing that grips and taunts
Shapes your days
into
nightmares

I Am She

Maleficent
Whose wings
Ripped from her back
by treacherous love
corrupted completely
betrayal finished the act
with hope of recovery
pain that sears the wounds in my back.


ok, that was then.

EXQUISITE DESTINATION

STRANGE SEX. IT'S A VACATION OF SORTS
THE FLIRTING, THE BUILD-UP
THE PLANNING YOUR COURSE

YOU DREAM. YOU FANTASIZE
THE FARAWAY PLACES
WHERE THE SUN SHINES ALL THE WHILE
AND MOONLIT NIGHTS IN SHINING SANDS
BRIMMING WITH POSSIBILITIES MATERIALIZE
YOU SMILE

YOU'RE GIDDY AS THE PLANE TAXIES DOWN THE RUNWAY
OR AS YOU WAIT AT THE BAR
TILL THE HANDSOME STRANGER GRACIOUSLY INTERRUPTS YOUR THOUGHTS
SIT BESIDE YOU; LOCKING EYES
READY JOIN YOU IN YOUR TRAVELS SOME DAY
TAKING YOU THE EXOTIC
BRINGING YOU THAT EXQUISITE DESTINATION
WHERE YOU RELAX & RELINQUISH CONTROL
WITH NO HESISTATION
WHERE YOU LAUGH & SMILE
A MEMORY CREATED FOR THE RELIVING
LEAVING YOU SHORT OF BREATH
WANTING MORE

I am that guy
That sit alone in a bar
Not knowing who you are
Iam that guy that watches you
All you do
Iam that guy
That sends a drink you
Smile at you when you raise the glass
I am that guy that stays that shy


bustinout20202 replies on 10/7/2021 9:25 am:
Seriously?? I wouldn't take you for a shy guy! but I love your poetry right there!

Sounds like younger you has found a way to deal with the hurts of past disappointments! Self determination is an important lesson to learn!

Two excellent poems that show how you have grown in spirit. I certainly could relate to being the odd duck at the bar or in the neighborhood though I cannot say I was old and certainly not wise. I have since learned to accept and indeed celebrate that I am different from most others and never quite fit in.

It is funny how finally accepting those differences. Who I am and that I may well be alone the rest of my life led me to discover someone who treasures who I am because of those differences that made me feel so different.

If you see me in the real world, come say "Hi Justskin."

I always behave. Preferably not well.
