This is Me....

This is Me....

I can love and despise in equal  measure,
some things I hate, but most  give  me pleasure
Some days I look great but inside I feel bad,
a smile on my face will hide all the sad.
My halo shines bright, to dazzle the sinner
that I can become if I am no winner.
My heart on my sleeve, my feelings I’ll share
but if you betray me you’ll see I don’t care.
I’m clumsy and gauche and trip over my feet
but a more gracious person you never will meet
Impatient and hate to be waiting in line
but if you should need me you’ll get all my time.
So many things scare me I’m not really brave
but loved ones in trouble I always will save
I’m clever and charming , my heart’s made of glass
But if you should hurt me I’ll just kick your ass
I’m complex, I’m simple, I’m crazy, I’m sane,
a font of all knowledge, but still a bird brain.
 I’m lazy and busy, I’m messy, I’m neat
I’m work that’s in progress and not quite complete.
I’m just who I am and some will think strange
but that’s all there is and I guess I can’t change

Grammy! That was fantastic! You are all of those things(especially the crazy part), and more..so much more. (Please don't kick my a**, regarding that crazy crack!). Anyway, you've always been a warm, caring, wonderful Grammy to me, and I just loved reading all about you. Thank you! 
Love, 
Matthew. 

PS. I'm just a dork, so my autobiography poem is a lot shorter...as a matter of fact, that was it! LOL.

PS. I was just thinking the other day, where is that Loki??!! So, thanks for coming back. I missed you!(I don't have many friends...(quiet sobbing)...people think I'm strange...which is OK, because I am, but a good strange. lol, like you...KIDDING!!). 
Missed U!

Aw thank you my lovely ! It's quite a revelation when we start analysing who we  think we are ..not always very pleasant  either..there are many more facets that I could expose... but maybe I should keep those under wraps for now..too scary to reveal..even to my honorary!!And why ever would anyone ever think you are strange  my darling? strange in my book = interesting, out of the ordinary,special,unusual.... and you are always that ! xx 
ps I have been off the scene for a while doing the crazy thing (well these days at least!) of holidaying for a while  in a small welsh cottage, overlooking Cardigan Bay,  with limited facilities, including plumbing.. and virtually no wifi /internet/signal..back to the dark ages..but I actually loved it in many ways..although I did miss you of course ♥♥

Hi Grammy, 
That sounds awesome! I'm glad you had a good time. I've been accused of having 'limited facilities' at times, so I know how that is. lol. 
Thank you for always being a wonderful friend on here! You are great! 
I always love to see you on here because I know I have a friend in you(I sound like a Toy Story movie!). 
Talk to you soon! 
Love, 
Matthew.

Wow LO!!...... that was a friggin' mouthful of honesty...... and quite poetic in its rhythm and near-perfect timing.......I have to give it to you..... you ran the gamut of human shortcomings in a brave comparison to their attributes.... and found it (even more bravely) ALL existing inside yourself!!

                     ~ "I'm clever and charming, my heart's made of glass
                         But if should hurt me, I'll just kick your ass...."

LOL!!...... you're awesome.....I was absolutely mesmerized as I read this..... which (in this case) is a sign of a truly compelling piece of poetic charm!!.......ALL STARS & PINNED!!......a fantastically fun read girlfriend!!......smokin' grooves LO!!....smokin' grooves!!......T xo 🐧❤😊

Hi Tony! wow what a great critique..It's having to be brutally honest sometimes and look at the good as well as the not so good that each of us has lurking within themselves...but I guess that's what makes us who we are ..that 'Ying and Yang' thing.. and finding the right balance to be able to live our lives well....You have found it within yours  as is so evident in your wonderful writing..thank you again brother poet..xxx

Hi Lodigiana....I don't think you should even try to change!  It seems you know yourself well and that is a rare thing...I think a lot of people are trying to figure out who they are in this confusing world.  You know how you think and feel, and that is awesome!  We all have such versatile sides to our personalities.  I love yours!  Very cool self-reflective piece.  I enjoyed. Love n Hugs, xo

Hi Cherie....I love the freedom one  gets  from getting older. because although the eyesight starts to  goes... we somehow, amazingly, ! can see things much clearer... ..particularly ourselves. We learn to laugh at ourselves and being a Brit we are actually  experts at self deprication .I love looking in the mirror of life and making peace with what I see reflected.. Love hearing from you  hun, always cheers my day up..thank you so much . xx

Hello my lovely! so good to hear from you...Sometimes we try too hard to be what others want us to be ..but ultimately we can only ever  really be ..ourselves..and as Oliver Cromwell once  said..warts and all!  and it's just a question of learning  to love and accept  all aspect of ourselves. Thank you so much for your kind words..Lodigiana xxx
