I want...

to be more than a nice idea
I want
the "to be loved" part of Arundhati Roy's quote
I want
someone to really want me
and not just the idea of me
without reservation,
and the ability to just put down the phone.

Your poem hit a nerve with me -- because I like ideas (good ones anyway), yet we all must struggle with them, not just with respect to how we are perceived by others, but also how we perceive ourselves. Yes! Without ideas, the self (or even the world) expands into something beautiful and unknown, and that's what we really need. It's LIVING.

Thank you for sharing and leading the way!
