With All of My Intelligence

"I choose to love this time for once
With all of my intelligence"

Adrienne Rich, "Splittings"



I wasted so many years
Seeing myself as no more than a prize
Hoping someone could win me, lift me up
Until I decided to climb

Now it’s been lonely here
Feeling so superior
Thought I’d seen it all
No one would induce me to fall

"I choose to love this time for once
With all of my intelligence"

Those eyes, that smile, the signs
All flashing yes, yes, yes
Illuminate how much I was missing
When I was mired in indifference

Now this time, at least, my self-sabotage
Is excessive hope I might get what I want
If you return all the breaths you’ve stolen
It won’t be for nothing that my heart was broken
