I Don't Know Her Personally...

Read my latest poem. I wrote it on an impulse.


--

I don't know her personally
but I bet she's the forgiving sort
knowing it's easy to be misunderstood
if admitting your mistakes
puts you in discomfort
I bet she sees that life
has made you walk in circles
and you never quite exit.

I don't know her personally
but I'm certain she tries her best
to toss the chains that tie
the body down
when all she wants to do is fly
heaviness anchors her to the ground.

I don't know her personally,
but I feel the warmth
oozing out of her photographs
she is kind and restless
her own number one enemy
quite like the rest
of the good ones
you see.

I don't know her personally,
but you do and while it is piss easy
to take for granted
someone who loves you
from the very beginning
spare the tricks,
or simply set her free.
