Little girl all grown up

Petulantly pouting,

ready to stomp my feet, 

throw myself on the floor and, 

and scream-sob

...I DONT WANT TO... 

NO, NO, NO!

 

Instead I act my age, 

swallow my anger 

and leave it bubbling under the surface, 

breathe to relax, 

stretch to unwind 

my mind 

from where it wishes 

to where it is.

 

Loneliness, 

where are you in my life 

when I am never alone enough to appreciate company?

 

I visit and chat 

show what is needed to be seen as me. 

When all is said and done, 

my being 

matters not in the presence of company 

- it is the affected exterior 

and how it is perceived 

that draws attention 

and if need be, it is held, 

drawing from the encounter 

whatever is required 

...information,

experience, 

physical contact 

and 

sadly... 

it is mostly lacking.
