what women want: an invitation

invited.
back patted.
hand clasped.
welcomed.
entrusted in naiveté.
loved, or sort of.
appreciated for what can be done.
pseudo authenticity.
walked the line.
mis-stepped.
delegated.
straight-laced.
watched.
discussed.
managed.
calculated.
measured.
redone.
reworked.
overhauled.
reengaged.
fizzled out.
burned out.
pigeon-holed.
misheard.
unheard.
confused.
misused.
pacified.
became a project.
voices faded.
love ran out.
overlooked.
pushed aside.
disregarded.
judged.
covered up.
noses up.
mouths aghast.
eyes widened.
pseudo family.
counterfeit grace.
not good enough.
too messy of a life.
mirage of mercy.
false fellowship revealed.
no more looking in the eye.
exchanged truth for lies.
thrown out.
passed off.
hands clean of misfit.
doors shut.
hearts closed anew.
where is real love in all of this?
where is the creator in all of this?
where is the definition of life in all this?
he is here.
he didn't leave.
he didn't disregard.
he didn't pseudo love.
he didn't mock.
he didn't cover up.
he is here.
he is outside the walls.
he is in kindness.
he is in authenticity.
he is in living life together.
he is in the messes.
he is here.
oh how he wants to be in there.
they won't let him in to stay.
but he is here.
