No, Not Me

i’m far too wild
to be tenuously dangled
on a thread of silk caprice
when whims permit

it seems you have mistaken
who it is you think i am
you see, i’m nothing like the others
who are wont to fawn in flounder

i am not to be worn
on a sleeve of solipsism
not a temporary titilation
tempered by your pique

i do not require the words of others
to be validated
my self-worth
is solely based on sentiments intrinsic

galavant in all your gloried dalliances
if you please
save your pittanced placatories
for some other pithless plaything

  1. I do love the way you tangle us in language. So honored to provide some inspiration for this. Those who would toy with your beautiful heart and souls do not deserve you dear one. You are not to be trifled with!
