I’ve learned how not to miss 
the age of tenderness
That I am so lucky to have 
seen once
And now that I’ve become older 
I’ve how to brush over
My history and how it’s sequenced

When I think about you 
I see a person who
Hasn’t existed for a long time
Before you started using, 
before I starting choosing
To do the same thing 
for the same reasons

The first name I called you 
is not a name at all
More of a duty than a function
Often an execution, often 
with deep confusion of 
‘Who was I when that name 
was just mine?’

Like a serpent charmer 
negotiating harm
I live with a basket of your silence
And as the years record 
I can feel it growing board
But I keep the top on 
in the meantime

When I pass my reflection 
there isn’t any question of
Where the person in it came from
When I catch myself thinking and 
hear the voice that speaks inside
I know where I got my brain from

Every step I’ve strayed 
from and followed
Led me to the same location
Every act I’ve forsake 
and borrowed
A delivery to now,
And I’ve never wondered 
how I came to be
I feel free like you promised I’d be.
