Older now

I am young enough to beat a fair few racers

in kayaking, to scale a fence, to lure a stray

and even to dance with a strange man,

so long as it’s on a weekend

 

It’s not that I don’t think I could find love again

it’s that I know I wouldn’t

if i’m honest, i never liked it

and now, especially,

I am too brittle and feeble minded

but even then

where other girls would be excited,

i was always frightened

One thought on “Older now
