Spinning

I’m spinning out of control and I don’t know how to stop

I’m unsure how this came to be

I don’t understand why I’m feeling this now

I can’t seem to keep my feet on the ground

What do I do?

How can I stop when I don’t even know why?

It took a while for me to warm up to Tom

I couldn’t see the point of it all

Why almost everyone was in awe with him

Why they liked him at all.

He was easy on the eyes

But not someone I was attracted to immediately

I nodded as they said how handsome he is

Although I didn’t think so, but then that was just me.

Then for some reason I dreamt of him

As if my brain was trying to tell me something

That one dream changed it all

And out of nowhere, I felt everything.

I couldn’t shake the thought of him

I couldn’t get him out of my mind

So I slowly tried to know the man

To see what I can find.

I found out he was kind and polite

That when he gave you his attention, he listens and remembers

That he’s a real gentleman and a wide reader

And he loves the feel of December.

He had faults, he isn’t perfect

And he doesn’t try to be or pretend to be

He can be a charmer when he wants to

And silent when sad, much like me.

He’s the guy you’d be proud to introduce to your dad and mom

Yes, that’s him…. That’s Tom.

I didn’t fall for him, not at first

I admired the man, that’s the truth

And slowly I understood

Why people liked Tom so much.

Different

I was never precious or fragile

I was hardly sweet and often too agile

They complain that I’m too much

Others say I’m not enough, as just such

I would never settle and they just can’t understand

I am not theirs to command

I stand out in a world that is full of the-sameness

Make up your mind and tell me what it is that you truly want

I don’t understand what it is you’re trying to say

Or not say.

I can’t read you

Just tell it to me straight

And make up your mind

Giving Up, Giving All

Here I am trying to sort this out

Here I am trying to survive

Trying to understand what am I about

And withstand the dive

I often, if not always, get knocked down

I whimper and frown

But as life is like this,

I just get back up again

Don’t Understand

They couldn’t and don’t understand her

Often wondering why she prefers to be alone

Why she wouldn’t want to be in relationships

Why she’d rather grow old by herself.

She couldn’t let them understand

That her happiness was not tied to relationships

That she was happiest being alone

To Be Tamed

They think she’s wild and needs to be tamed

So they all try to come with ropes, give her a name

The more they intimidate her, the more she fights it

The more they pressure her, the more she hates it

They misunderstand because they don’t want to understand

She doesn’t need to be tamed, she just need to be left as she is

A Conundrum

She was likened to a conundrum

She was often misunderstood 

She walked to her own beat

An unexpected kind of mood

She was a puzzle, a riddle 

That no one was likely to solve

How difficult it must be to love me

How hard it must be not to be noticed

To be put aside

Like I’ve done to so many

And yet, I do not feel the loneliness

Either I am numb or just happy to be without anyone

It’s My Choice

I am hard to understand, so better not try to

Not many can see what I can

I am considered a freak of society 

Because I choose to be single

At an age that many are already settled.
My being settled is different from most

And I know it’s hard to comprehend

My relationship status is not bounded or dictated by society

It’s just what I choose

I choose me

And others fail to see that.
