Redesigned

REDESIGNED

I suffered once the curse of caring

Always giving, oversharing

love and interest overflowing

reaching out, asking, knowing

Burning wish to give of me

Burning curiosity

But karmic promises betray

for each receiver walks away

caring not for she who gives

dishing hate (though she forgives)

slandering tongues and icy hearts

trying to tear mine apart

Why continue the befriending

with such inevitable endings?

Love, care, call, commit

but then receive the opposite?

Well-played, unjust universe

 rewarding blessings with a curse

 But ha! I guess the joke’s on you

For I am Queen of making-do

and keeping joyful attitude

within my life of solitude

Learning to care less and less

for those outside my own recess

Anorexic heart of mine

thriving empty, redesigned.
