If you ever got to know me

If you ever got to know me

A Poem by DriDri

If... 
you ever got to know me 
you would know that I like to live 
on the edge 
on the run 
pack up my bags and go whereever, whenever I'm called 
If you ever got to know me 
you could tell that the cookies and cream concoction of my skin 
will relay little about who I am or where I've been 
If you ever got to know me 
you would know that I paint 
with words 
brushstrokes 
keyboards 
and parallel lines of kohl around my eyes 
not to mask or hide from the reality you seem to be so interested in 
but to remind myself that my imagination is not limited to canvas 
If you ever got to know me you would see that my life is an intricate poem 
jam packed with secret messages in bottles floating in an ocean 
full of creative juices flowing from a cranium only designed or understood 
by a creator so much larger than we can imagine 
If you ever got to know me you would know that I live by the fibers of the world 
grains 
yarns 
stitches 
running my hands across items is like breathing in the sent of my creator 
in 
out.
