She is the one you lie with every night
The phone call you get where you drop your phone
In anticipation of what she could want with you.
I am the one you forget about
The lie you keep nestled secretly under your breath.
She is a seed you planted
So you could watch something beautiful grow.
I am a weed that pops up in a garden
Where people say “where the hell did that thing come from?”
She is the mother of your child
I am the step child that nobody claims.
She is the very breath you take
I am the moment that takes your breath away.
She is a picnic in a park with butterflies and wine
I am dangling from a cliff asking you to join me.
She is the beautiful sunny weather with a tad of wind
I create hurricanes, tornadoes, and love it when they come together.
She is your passion, in life and love
I am your temptation, the darker side of you
Lies bind us and keep us deceptive.
But in knowing what and whom we are
We are the truth.
