You are what ideas you dare to retain.
Me? I am what choose to forget.

Tell me a question and I’ll ask you an answer.
Write me a song and I’ll sing you a poem.

Good morning from my sliver of paradise. How’s the weather there? I’m always accepting reviews and comments. If you’d like me to write one for you, I will as soon as I see that delightful notification dot. Also, I’m open to chat if you’d like. :)

if only there were better metaphors

My love for you is a fish net.
Weathered by elements
it serves me reliably,
often deep under the surface.
Rain or shine,
in calm waters and violent ones,
it brings me catches 
and when the things it endure 
toss it head overteakettle 
I’ll delicately unpick the tangles.
When exposed to the light,
it looks weak, like a beached jellyfish
but I know the truth,
when you see its power...
you know how it serves me,
filtering goodness into my life.
My love for you is a fish net

and when I’m finally snared by it
I just might drown.

    Re: Thanks. I see how you would want to look like them but I find that it would be better to be different. I'm sick of looking the same. of all the comments to me about how much I look like my mother. And It might be rude but I just don't want to be like her.

    Wow wow wow. Such a brilliant metaphor! The parallels are beautiful and clever. And the ending, quite simply stunning! See this is why I love poetry, at each turn you're introduced to life in a new angle, over and over again!
