Confession

Wednesday, September 26, 2018

At the risk of stating the obvious
I am very beautiful, and sometimes
it gets in the way of real friendship,
because I’m not sure what people want.
Sometimes I just have to say, back off.

But other times I let the other person
or people fall into the dream of light
their own tearful eyes have created
based on the ineffable glory
of my physical appearance.

It is on those occasions I’m reminded
of something Sir Elton John once said:
It seems to me you lived your life

like a candle in the wind, never knowing
who to cling to when the rain set in.

Of course, in my head I change it to,
to whom to cling when the rain set in.
