Not Without Purpose

I know this world

I’ve been here for a long time

I watch my steps

Blinded by the thought

I creep

I can, so I do

Not without purpose

Not without the reason for which this exists

I may not see, but I can hunt

It’s in my blood

It’s in my bones

I am not the nurturer

Not the giver

Only the taker

And take I will

I take more than you give

More than you have to give

The Girl He Loves

There’s a bitterness to her cough

There is rage to her stare

She seems to be in a far away place

You don’t mind, though

You’ve loved her for this long

You’ll love her for longer still

Never mind the outbursts

Never mind all the comments

That’s not how you see her

You’ve been at this for a long time

Why would you change now?
