flesh and blood

flesh and blood
am i
not (only) a projection
of your mind
not a fantasy
to keep you warm
or feeling “sexy”

tenderness and tears
am i
not a soft couch
to visit
when you’re lonely
or need a surrogate

flesh and blood
and tears and sadness
and smiles and joy
am i

but you
will never see that
in your room
far away
where you,
not i
am locked away

i dance
on the ether
and on the dark earth

i love
with full body
and wide open heart

I move
towards a love
who will hold me close

I gather
true friends close
who know who I am
