Something new...


Feeling a bit angsty, I threw together a quick poem.   I slapped it down in about three minutes flat (okay, maybe five) but I was feeling it and it was feeling me and it was just meant to be.  Maybe I'll edit it later.  Feel free to leave your comments.

S  t  r  e  t  c  h   M  e
S t r e t c h me 
this way and that
Up and down, side to side, back and forth
Tell me you love me, tell me you hate me
Tell me I’m worthless, tell me I’m great
I want nothing
Just my sanity
my freedom
to make my own choices
my own mistakes
I’m no longer sixteen
The girl on your lap
The girl in your bed
The girl in your head
I’m not numb any more
Nor passive
 Nor quiet
I’m living
And breathing
And I rather like it
So s t r e t c h me 
this way and that
Up and down, side to side, back and forth
It matters no longer
And I may be reckless, I may be unbalanced
But it comes down to this
I…am… being.
