I stayed long enough
Stood at the burning spear of waiting
Anxious to be plucked like a flower
And to perch in his roots
Yet, winds of time blew away the crown of reassuring words
I rose from the ashes of stale promises
And I turned to the infinity of a world sans cliches
Now, in the air, roaming,
Like the mundane songs of rowdy travellers
Or the psalms of monks in a haunted cave
I’m gliding with fragrant wings of a salvaging truth
I’m free to summon disintegrated dreams
People, once, cherished the scents of
I’m free to converge on an abandoned plank;
To raise the masts of desire of whom, I desire.
I’m mine, I do not seek ownership
So cease branding my muliebrity
I can be a companion, only, or no one to you!
