Cuckoo in The Nest

The things I love that are not you do not diminish you.

The things I love that are not you are not a mirror

reflecting flaws and failings back at you,

mocking.

They are the peculiar part of me I only share

with you

 

The things I love that are not you make room for you.

The things I love that are not you welcome and adore you,

only to be spurned and distressed

by you; a cuckoo in the nest.

 

Your intention to dethrone

with tyranny and contempt,

the things I love that are not you

will lead to banishment

will only serve toΒ clip your wings

and ground you in your shame,

lonely would be usurper,

never wholly mine again

 

 

Your reply:

I am intimidated by the things you love that are not me

and I can not love or understand the things you love

I can only

love me
