VERSE | YOU ARE

You Are
Too different
Too controversial
Too weird
Too quiet
Too absent

You Are
Too passionate
Too frigid
Too pushy
Too gregarious
Too reserved

You Are
Too opinionated
Too invested
Too indifferent, disinterested

You Are
Too much but
You Are
Also not enough

These arrows used to fly
East and west
Between the bazaars and the mosques
Down and up
From my beating heart
To my silent mouth, forging
Right angles containing me
In burnished boxes glittering bright
But in the moorings
Of all these paradoxes writhing out
Like strident dirges from treacherous lyres
Howling of brimstone and hellfire
Now I hear only one thing
I only hear that one constant thing

YOU ARE!

In the refrains that ring
Thunder and break
I hear it sing:

YOU ARE!

In all that cacophony
In the clarion calls of propriety
Pounding, rounding endlessly
From the steeples of society
That is all I ever hear now

🌸 YOU ARE! 🌸 YOU ARE! 🌸 YOU ARE! 🌸

Yes I am! I finally am! This is me
And that is all I ever need to be.
