The Poem I Wrote Today #6

If I could have been a beautiful woman,
I would ask for a beautiful brain.
So my pretty body wouldn’t feel odd
With the mind I have now.
I would love patience and polish
Doves and kisses
People and dancing.
I’d love so much more, then.
That’s what I want
The confidence of beauty.
All who see me, love me,
And I have all the love in the world to give
Because I don’t know better.
Not with my pretty little head.

The Poem I Wrote Today #5

A woman told me today I would be ok,
I met her just now,
She said it like she cared,
I believed her
I put my arm in front of my chest
I held her off.
Because it couldn’t be.
A stranger, this woman, couldn’t care more than blood.
None of my own
See me like this woman here
Who isn’t paid to like me
But cared because she could.
And I wasn’t quiet,
I was myself
For the woman I met today
Who told me I could be ok.
And she asked me same time next week?
From behind the appointment desk.
