She didn’t build walls

To keep anyone out.

She built them

To keep herself together.

So she could remember

Who she was

Why she was here

What was important

What was not.


She doesn’t date every man she sees

Because nothing within a man

Is something she is lacking within herself.

She doesn’t feel the need to give herself away

Like candy at Halloween.

She will not be a notch

Or the woman you barely recall

Because trust me

If there is one woman you will remember

It will be her.


She doesn’t exist for you

She exists for the world

To have her view

Hear her words

Feel her peace

Her torment

And be happy

They got to see

What they did

Of her.
