Roses By Any Other Name…

Call it only what it is
and not what it is not,
not what you want it to be,
not what you want from me –
this thing
that hurts
that makes me bleed
for being what I am,
for being what you asked,
for being more
than I should have been;
so call it only what it is,
not what it could have been,
not what I believed it to be.
