Woman tied in chairEmotional Chairs

I see you there, playing the young girl
Smartly styled and stylishly spoken
You challenge yourself to experience life
Yet you run with your fears to ignore them.

I see you there, playing the wise guide
Envy of the men who want you
Jealousy from the women who cannot be you
Yet you refuse to connect within yourself

I see you there, playing the immortal
Stumbling away minutes like they’re not precious seconds
Denying the essence of love
For the superficial interactions of the disconnected

I see you there because you’re in my seat
The one I selected in my heart long ago
In an upbringing now far, far away
I stumble and walk away with no place to sit…
