Tea For Two

Did you say you want to know me?
Which me could that be ...
which of the what-evers that were me when?
The one from way back then
with pigtails flying behind
already learning to hide pain
to become another Me
that no one could see
unless they looked real close?
Looked at the daughter, the sister,
the student, the friend, the worker,
the lover, the wife, the drunk.
The Momie me, the widow,
the divorced me ... twice ..
the divorced from me Me.
Which role to know?
Age brings them to an end,
no more parts to play, no pretend,
no stage or lights, only lines etched by time.
Naked we arrived to life.
Naked we leave emptied
of all the layers of all the Me.
Perhaps we will know
in that other place, that other space,
where souls become We.

    Thanks Sue for the tip. I looked the word melt·ing up melt·ing [mélting] adj sweet and tender: full of or causing sweet and tender or sentimental emotion This is what it gave. LOL! A bit confusing. Altho melding means combinding something. Agape, Moses

    "Naked we arrived to life, naked we leave emptied..." Very profound and that's just what life is, us playing many parts until we finally conked off. To this Biology grad, it's called 'metamorphosis. I like this write. Fred

    wow, Sue, I have to echo what Carol said below here. This is maybe the best one of yours that I have seen. this has to be faved! Very profound and a deligth to read. As for my "variety" in writing forms, I am lucky that rhyme offers so many forms. I need those restrictions that "forms" place on me, otherwise, I would be running rampant (too wordy all the time. haha) lUv, andrea

    Sue, this is the best I mean the best one you have ever written. This is me Carol and this is MY favorite. Love you my friend, Carol

    You reveal so much of yourself in this write, Sue. But it is the total and complete you that I wish to know. Strip away the layers and you have a compassionate heart seasoned through time by struggles and in tune with the needs of others because of your experiences. Really liked the line about the "divorced from me Me." Excellent! Love, Carolyn
