The One

I am not one dimension
Though many need me to be
Twists and turns and blind corners
Make a labyrinth in me

There is more than one note
Pinging off walls in my skull
Whispers, sonnets, and screams
Escaping freely when full

I make multiple movements
Inside this skin of mine
At once lady and whore
Rebellious and refined

Then there are moments
I am quiet and still
Teaching me of observance
Tiny control of my will

I’ll take it all while I’m making
You want to smile and to run
But wanting all of it with me
Is what makes you the one

  1. I like this one, the twists, the turns, the duality.
