She listens very carefully
And yet never seems to know
I need it to feel like myself
It helps me to let go

Two of my greatest loves
Conflicting day to day
Like a child who wants to sleep
But also wants to play

She bursts into my room
A vengeful storm enraged
Angrily ruins both at once
The majestic animal can’t be caged

And then as quick as she began
She’s gone without a trace
Leaving me in deafening silence
And feeling out of place

But a love so bittersweet
Plagues my too soft heart
We’re still close despite the hate
She has for my favorite art
