Thank You

No man is an island,

I’m part of the mainland,

Part of the world,

An independent being,

But not independent of the world,

Not free from your support,

Not free from your criticism,

Not free of your love,

Bound to those I interact with,

Both in the past and present,

There is no me,

If there’s no you,

I can’t be the best,

If there’s no runner-up,

Can’t be the worst,

When there’s no perfection,

I simply want to thank you.

 

 

You’ve taught me love,

Shown me hate,

Been loyal,

Broke all your promises,

Been honest,

Lied to the comma,

But you’ve been there regardless,

Whether it was through the good,

Or missing at my worst,

You are a part of my life,

As much I want to be with you now,

And commit a murder the next,

Where I want you is where you are,

Next,

Not next to me,

Not next to my kin,

But just next,

Because you may be the one,

In a few hours you may be ex from a text,

All in all, I thank you.

 

 

I ask for forgiveness,

For I know I’m about to do wrong,

I may just throw what we’ve built,

Not because I’m an animal,

Simply because I’m human,

And momma told me,

Never to lose my life for a lost cause,

So I’m not throwing my life away,

I thank you for your effort,

But there’s more to life,

I’m not just a piece of work,

I’m a work of art,

Skilfully crafted to perfection,

So your effort is great,

But I search for perfection,

What lacks between us is affection,

That sense of connection,

But I said I’d grown,

And I’m taking everything in stride,

No more lies,

No more excuses,

Our time is up,

All I want you to know is,

I thank you.

 

 

But no matter where I go,

I can’t get you off my mind,

The cold nights,

The see-through tights,

The grasp that was tight,

It’s all in my head,

And as much as I’d want to forget you,

You just don’t delete memories,

Good or bad,

Romantic or erotic,

You evoke deep thoughts within me,

Like the depths I’d go for you,

Verbally or physically,

Literally or literary,

Babying these thoughts,

Have them in my nursery,

I said it was only a matter of time,

But it’s led me to a quagmire with my females,

But there are differences,

Because I miss you already,

And when they explain it will be,

He said, she said,

But we all know I am grateful,

Thank you.
