Not Just US

She wasn’t home to me,

Not that place of safety and security

Or of warmth and nurture

She was complete chaos

Undomesticated 

Confusion and disorder

But I still wanted to be unpredictable with her

Be her “never enough”

Her “not right now”

Her ”not just us”

To be in the unknown with her,

 Was still more satisfying;

 Then being everything definable

To someone else
