NO PUPPET
(10/3/17)

practical

to the point

not an ounce
of romance

I watch
movies

read
books

I understand
the social
conventions

but I
do not
feel them

I can only
conduct myself
as my nature
allows

would
you rather
that I pretend
for you?

become
someone

something
else?

a disreality?

if so
finding someone
who fits
your criteria
would be simpler
for both
of us

I have
not
the energy
to change

leave me
if you will

to be alone
as God
made me
