Wasted Life

I am emotional.
Emotional state:
Emotionally unavailable;
Emotionally aware,
But purposely impenetrable.
I am sentimental.
Intricately woven in
Candid camouflage,
Appearing nonchalant.
I am a lover.
Squandered by lust,
Tempting only uninhabited bodies;
Expressionless lover.
Hostility disguising vulnerability,
Or else perverted by libido.
I am intellectual.
Intellectually independent;
My superiority is persecuted
By protected dependence,
By learned ignorance.
I am a woman.
Placed in captivity,
Accommodating insecurity
To prevent identity;
Equality is avoidable,
Liberation is irrelevant.
