I Keep A Written History

I Keep A Written History

A Poem by CL
"

This is a poem about how i have been told many times by people that they dont get it, they can't read me, or simply that they feel i'm hiding something. Not that i think i owe one, just thought it wou

You say it seems that I'm hiding something-

Maybe its my answers;

Or that when you asked, I said nothing.


If in need of explanation,

here’s my summation;

my trust has reached stagnation-

I learned don’t trust what isn’t well known,
And even then reside in caution-
Don’t let your full cover be shown.

Afraid; I am not-
and secrets, I have little;
So hold to the ones I've got-

avoid becoming transmittal.

We all love good mystery;

It's simply human nature.

I keep a written history,

But it will not read off my behavior.

I'm manipulative-
as well as contemplative.
I'm witty and I'm charming-
perhaps over demonstrative

I'm tricky-
and I'm picky.
Caught up,

a bit sporadic-

and when I speak,

I am emphatic.

But in this too, I am loyal-
Kindhearted;
Was left broken-
When we parted;
But I still cant wait to get started.

I'm trustworthy,

but if need be-

also bloodthirsty.

I know respects to be earned-
If nothing else,
It's this that I have learned.
