I am not an option
Or a void filler
Neither a distraction nor a chore
I am not a danger
I am not an anchor
Or a cage
I say soar
I am not a whip
Or a guilt trip
I am not an argument
Or a tear
I am not a heartbreak or a pillow
I am happy as a stranger
Happy to have no threat near
I know fairy tales of lives lost to loneliness
To fear
I know horror stories of dead horses beaten on for years
I know how the honest lie
How the sensitive cry
How the apologetic come with no knowledge
I am not meat to be met
Or a hand searching to be acknowledged
I am not a tension in your shoulder
Or attention given lightly
I am not demanding
I just dignify my body
I am not a flesh sharer
Nor am I starving for risks
I do like to sleep peacefully without a liar’s kiss
I am not a fantasy
I am a memory
I know reality
I am not a savior
But I do protect me
I am not defensive
Challenging or player two
I am who I know I am
Can you say this too
I am not a twin flame or a soulmate or a mirror
I am not a dream or a Mirage
I am so much realer
I am what the fates call a deep feeler
I am
And am for
2 clean hands lead by 1 mind
Centuries deep in Heart science
I am not a miracle
I am not a thing
I am not an object
Nor am I suffering
I am knowledge to be consumed
Open to receive A You
When alignment creates timing.
