Selfish

~

Selfish I am with the words I write-

You can read them

trace then slowly with your eyes

but will never understand.

You can give them meaning

but it will be all lies

for they are mine alone.

Sure, they may look like yours

with traces of your dreams

leaking in between,

but they are mine alone

and clearly mistaken

when my words are taken

and use them like they are yours.

I become selfish with the words I write

you can only read them

and never understand

for I keep the secrets behind every letter

hidden far away

and I hold the key for every written line.

Selfish I am with the words I write

and they are only mine.

H.O
