Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Manipulation of a narcissist across the distances
Im sitting
In the absence
of your presence.
Youre not here,
But your manipulation
Reaches through distances
Ive not yet been.
Places ive no desire to go.
Id love to just walk away
Leaving you in the wind
Of your tornado's wreckage.
But im stuck,
Waiting on paper.
Holding on to hope
You just let me go.
Im tired to my marrow
Beyond all the promises
The hopes and the dreams
Of a little girl and her fairy-tales.
Ive finally realized
Im not trapped in a tower
Waiting on a knight to let me down.
Im the woman,
With magic in her wings.
Ill fly out on my own,
High above your grasp,
While im waiting on paper.
