note to self: i’ll be there for you, always

written june 6, 2021. Photo by Kristine Cinate on Unsplash I have always looked for myself in other people. I think the idea was that they would somehow hold the pieces of me that I felt were missing. That maybe, if I wrapped my identity up in theirs enough, we would somehow make a whole person. It's not healthy to live like this, but I did it anyway — burning through relationships and searching for something I couldn't quite name. It was never enough, not to be myself, but it was never enough to latch my identity to other people, either. I got close, several times — I thought I had reached the pinnacle of self discovery. I thought I had completed myself. But in the end, relying on other people to help build yourself is never a viable way to do things. It's only recently that I've started to become comfortable with the idea of being enough, as I am, on my own. Several years ago, in this same position, I would have searched for another person to attach my identity onto,

I'm a poet, didn't you know it?! :D

It's the middle of summer, and my feet are cold.
I could put two pairs of socks on... if I get bold
Why did I try to start off with this rhyme?
I think I just committed a writer's crime...
I need to stop but I just can't do it
I'm a poet at heart when it comes down to it
I'm not just cold but I'm hungry too
I guess, if I wanted to, I could get some food.
I'm growing tired of this rhyming game
But I kind of enjoy it even if it's lame
I decided it's been so long since I wrote anything
So you'd better read this post with lots of rejoicing
I'd make an excuse,
But what would I say? There's really no use.
I've been busy, that's true, but I've said that before
I'd better stop before I write anymore
I hope you enjoyed this post long overdue
I wrote it specifically for you, and you.
My faithful readers, even if they are few.
I'll try to post soon, it's been too long, I know.
But now it's time for me to go.
My blog entries will soon become valuable as gold.
Since it's the middle of a busy summer...
...and my feet are still cold.


  1. Hey... pretty neat! It's a wacky piece of poetry, but fun to read. Great job!
