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.

No Love

They judge me

They tell me I’ve never truly felt love

Or been in love
But how would they know?

The dim witted often think they’re smart

They will never understand 

And I won’t care

Because I know,

Heartbreak is all I’ve ever had 

About Being Single

Every single day they tell me

Tease me

And sometimes it hurts me

Because a single word can be hurtful 

When every single time you are told

As if you do not feel a single emotion 

As if you are not smart enough to understand 

Because they think being single is a disappointment 

When truth is, their single mindedness 

Is the real problem

I Don’t Understand

I thought that was it
I thought you’d be it
Turns out just like before, you are just a phase

I’ve let you go and I am not holding back
You’re not the one for me
I guess you never were

And although that is something I don’t understand
I accept the truth and the fact
So I can be at peace with myself

Read Him

I can’t understand him at times
And yet I feel there is something sometimes
Most often, it’s as if there is none
And I sometimes fear there never was or all but gone!

He makes a move
And then he doesn’t
He doesn’t say it but then I feel it?
But then again, maybe it’s just me

I can’t size him up
I can’t read him at all
I may as well give up
Let it fall or get nothing at all

Her True Nature

He thought he wanted her
Just because of how she looked
He could never fathom her
She would never give it away

She was a mystery
And she wanted to keep it that way
He kept on guessing
But he could never capture her true nature

No one listens…

everyone talks so loud
They waltz around looking so proud
But do they understand?

No talking, just shouting
Two ears to listen, that’s where we need to begin
