I think I'm selfish

In a way, I prefer

To be the writer then

The muse I'm to

Frightened that if

I'm captured on a

Page as easily as I

Do with others and

Flowers that I'll be

Stuck there and a

Part of me will for-

Ever be trapped as

A character in a page

Mind you I've drawn

From parts of me to be

A character but in stories

I write and control which

Is not quite the same thing

Still I suppose it is rather

Arrogant to assume I could

Ever properly capture another

Person, or a bit of nature

Never truly I suppose I'm

Just writing a reflection and

That is all anyone does so

I have no reason to fear it
