Poetry

Endangered

I am the rare bird
The white rhino
An oliphaunt

The mythical bitch of dreams

I am what you seek
Your ongoing quest
Within reach and real

Too real for reality

I am different
Not normal
Intriguing

You fear me
Despite being in awe of me

Back away slowly…

Am I not meant to be found?
Am I not meant to be had?
Am I merely a quest of proof
To be chartered on a page
Before it’s turned and forgotten?

Turn around
Walk away
Compartmentalize
Tuck me away as a moment
One that could’ve been forever

Who will love me
Before I meet extinction?
Who will love me
Before I choose conformity?
Who will love me for me
Before I become not so rare?
