Don’t tell her she can’t –
Don’t push her down and tell her what she should want,
Don’t shatter her will into a million tiny fragments, and tell her she wasn’t meant for it anyway,
Don’t break her confidence, and then belittle her to stay,
Don’t ask her to stop, or persuade her to let go,
Don’t force a yes out of her every no,
Don’t ignite her into a flame of ashes, and ask for her fire,
Don’t reduce her to a pool of tears and become her pacifier,
Don’t peek into her flaws and tell her who she is,
Don’t define for her, her definition of bliss.

I hoard books for a living. And read them too, when I am not sleeping. I express what I think, so my unheard feelings don't sink. I like to sing when I walk, to keep shades grey, at bay. I speak like a dork, but I don't want to drive anyone away. I write what's real, and nothing fake, so visit my blog whenever you need a break ;)
