Same Difference - Poem by Lieketseng Ntsala

It's that subtle selfishness
That underlying 'me' - ness
That I-ness in your eyes...
I see it you
Just as I saw it in him too

It's like me doing all that I can to let you know that I got your back
While you just stand there and try figure just how far back
My back will bend for you
It'd be so easy for me to assume that there's no difference between the two
But you are you
And it's just...
You know the tiny
Itty Bitty 'unnoticeable things you'll do

Like how when yu haveing a bad day
I should
Cut and paste the things I might say
Out loud or in my head
Like how when You are in a grove
I should 'expect' you to unexpectedly snap at any moment
- Oh and that when you do
It's not that you intend to
You know...
It's just that things like that happen
When YOU are in a groove

It might be because you just did it that I'm 'venting'
If you haven't already realised
Writting is my therapy
I'm not mad
Maybe dented a bit
But definately not mad
That's just you
When YOU are in your groove

I've seen something VERY similar to this before
He had it
And you seem to have it too
It's that subtle selfishness
That underlying 'me' - ness

Note to 'the newness'
I found a name for what you are to me
- A Complex simplicity

That I-ness in your eyes...
I see it you
Just as I saw it in you too
