Change Your Spots

“Change Your Spots”

I’m not
trying
to change
a thing
here
I’m not
doing
anything
wrong 
I’m writing
leave me
alone Dear

A leopard
never changes
her spots
She won’t
even try
to
Stop your
desire to
change who
I am
what I do
or my process

I’m not
going
to change
a thing
here
I’m not
the one
in the 
wrong
I’m writing
leave me
alone
I’ve committed
no crime

I haven’t
changed 
but you 
have
I adjust
and readjust
to you
and lose 
a piece of
myself
each time
I do

I’m never
going
to change
a thing
here
I’m sometimes
the one
to blame
I don’t 
need to 
be right
all the time
I’m writing
leave me 
alone or
I’ll scream

You have
changed
It’s time
you adjust
and readjust
to me
and start
losing
pieces of
yourself
each time
you do
I know
I know
you won’t 
feel a thing

Same old
story 
dear
adjust
adapt
overcome
as I do
I’ll feel
enough
for the
both of us
sad but
true
I’ve committed
no crime
yet 
Dear man
don’t push
