its you. not me.

i didnt change,
your opinion of me did.


and believe me
that is enough to change anyone
in your own eyes.


i didnt change,
your expectations of me did.


and frankly,
thats enough to have anyone transform
right before your very eyes.


i didnt change,
your assumptions of me did.


and really
thats enough to alter anyone
in the eye of the beholder.


my thoughts havent changed.
i do not think differently.
and you wouldnt know.
for you never knew what i was thinking
in the first place.




and change
is almost
always
ever so

Oh, this was lovely. You write so poetically, so honestly...you are truly a gem, my dear.

Thank you for sharing your gift with the rest of us. I feel at ease reading the words by which you sew so neatly and elegantly (for they feel sewn across my heart)

Love,
Norah x
