I am...

I am-
first
and foremost
a paradox
an unusual
blend
melange
of
the old-fashioned,
conservative,
hypermoral
- all
juxtaposed
with
the radical...
such a zenith
of non-conformity.
I am
someone
sober and sensible
usually quite sociable
yet at times
brooding
- a loner.
I am
utterly intense
quiet and chatty
frenzied and fiery
unruly,
relentless...
I am
philosophical
analytical
eccentric, bipolar
steady
and zealous...
truly all woman.
I am
quirky
as a cat
an enchanting
enigma
so multidimensional
I seem complex
though I'm
actually
quite straightforward.
I am
stubborn yet yielding
sensitive and stern
meek and mild
mightily mysterious
spiritual,
( ever seeking)
and yes,
I've the artist's
temperament
though I'm never
" typical"
simply " unique"
- as are we
all.

Me
