Slippers and Lampshades

Slippers and Lampshades

 

He bought me slippers and lampshades

He knows my weakness and strength 

What can I do?

What should I do?

He knows me inside out

 

I’ll turn it outside in

I’ll give it all back to him

I’ll reverse the trend

I’ll resend to sender ........

 

Taken - I’ve resolved it

Holding it - I’m attached

 

Concluded

Letting go

Reversing

 

I’ll give myself to him

 

He holds it

It’s cool

It’s pulled me

It’s stopped me wanting more .......

 

Where have I gone?

Who am I now?

 

I’m somewhere in between us

Somewhere beneath the sheets

Somewhere beside 

The fleeting changes

The seamless dissection

And misdirection 

We give each other

In our quest for perfection

 

It’s taken now

My ego

Altered, turned around

 

It’s dissolved into one

Gone

But becoming a unity

A purpose, a love, a bond ❤️
