You Are Not

You are not like every cliché repeated often till meaning dies

You are like brilliant truth, revealing my weakness for your body

You are not like a rose whose fragrance and guarded beauty is oft repeated

You are like the smell of a thousand pines calling and seducing me to lay in your arms

You are not like an angel whose wings carried you to me from afar

Your are like mischievous devils whose temptations take me from fantasy to reality

You are not like a song, a tune sung over and over, children clapping their hands

You are like the sounds of waves, crashing your sexuality over my beaches

You are not like gentle swans, perfect beauty so many times compared

You are like violent lightning, striking the lies of men and melting my soul to yours

You not like the ordinary and common seen on every poet’s page

You are like the grandeur of space, possessing the beginning and ending of my life

I’m an apologist and an apostate. I’ve been knocked down, way down, and fought my way back up, way up. I’ve been an advocate of peace and a destroyer of the same, in a word, I am dichotomy. A battle of polar opposites.
