Vintage Words


Companionless, you prefer yourself

like a hard covered tome on a shelf

filled with classics. When people

talk to you, close the book so no one

gets a good read from your pages.


Lonely is as lonely does

it's simply how it always was.

Keep out is not a good motto

but it is the best one for today.


Interaction screams to be fated

to happen so when all this talk abates

quietude's the life. Chuck them all

and put up a sign that says

leave me be.

When we get choose the hurt

When we get to choose, the hurt can sometimes turn to defiance , but it is the child in us all that spoils it. Failing to listen and admit it, rejection is closing a door to pain, but leaving no key for love to try again. Perhaps, and then again who knows.... Mayhap only you.

Paratrooper's don't die........ they go to Hell and regroup!!!

Thick Skin

...is what happens. Finding love is tiring and a large time investment initially so when it fails you have nothing but bad feelings so my solution was to remain single. Women who are in successful relationships and get married and stay with their one man their life entire (or his) I salute you. The world does have open doors and love and connection. For me, that boat sailed in 63, 74, 88, 92, and 2010. I'm not easy, I'm too smart a guy told me once. He said, "I want someone I can shape." Hmmmmm...I should write that book with that title or the book "Men" with that as a chapter. But I think it has already been done. - I'm Just Sayin' - Lady A

Luckily for you no one likes

Luckily for you no one likes a braggart! ;P 

I find much of my own thoughts in this poem, I love my solitude yet I ach for interaction... I find very competent people attract an entourage of needy manipulators and that's why I carry my needy sheers in case of pruning. "Im too busy to do what I love; what makse you think I  need to help you...? I often think to my self... Yeah well thats my rant, thanks for listening :) I often hate being one of those people that hate leaving things go to shit so... Curse my affliction, but also wonder how others can...  Oops there I goes again!!!??? ;) hugss 

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS    

"Well, it's life SIMS, but not as we know it" - ¡$&am

Ha! You sound like me

Ha! You sound like me sometimes. Other times companionship sounds loverly.
