Who Am I, You Ask

I can warm you and burn you. Break you and make you. Kiss me or love me. F—k me or befriend me. Use me or keep me. Leave me or influence me. My love for you won’t change, if you let me love you.

 For as open and honest as I am
I am as closed, locked, and sealed as a safe.
 
For as loving and thoughtful as I am
I am as cold as icy metal bars of a Victorian gate.
 
Single. Educated. Biracial and Bi-curious.
Lost. Stable. Confused and Confident.
Writer, friend. Poet and Warrior Queen. Goddess.
Villainous, yet heroic. Selfish and Selfless.
Marvelous, yet humble.
 
Like a mountain, I am stubborn and will not bend.
Like a forest, I am deeper than you’re likely going to get.
Like an ocean, I am dangerous.
Unpredictable, I wield my Force.
Like an apple, I am sweet and sour. Tangy.
Planting seeds into your center.
 
You will never see all of me, just parts of me.
I am a flickering flame, bending and shifting,
along and against the winds of change,
but always remaining the same.
I can warm you and burn you. Break you and make you.
Kiss me or love me.
F---k me or befriend me.
Use me or keep me. Leave me or influence me.
 
My love for you won’t change,
if you let me love you.
But I best be on my way,
if you don’t grow up someday.
For as loyal and faithful as I am
Only a loving and honorable man (or woman)
can convince me to stay.
