failed to recognise

What she failed to recognise
I was offering something more
what I missed by a mile
did not understand
is that more means complicated
to simpler people
& who needs that?
she wanted white gates
on a long white picket fence
2.2 kids in the big car
to take them away at weekends
to places new
adventures safe
with her strapping man
& this definitively
was not what I had in mind
mine was more to explore
the distance between us
wide open to the stars
all possibilities
we could be anything
just how far do you want to play
today?
this invokes the fear
instead its tv & bingo for fun
the missionary
on a Saturday night
if the days, week
cat is ok
all for an easy life
anything but
be
