Not a Man

Regina Puckett


To go backwards I just close my eyelids

I go right back to the games we played as kids

We ran in circles as if our lives depended on it

If we touched you – you were doomed to be it

But these days I run in circles without playing

I can hear your voice and not hear what you’re saying

Even though I touch you, you run away without being it

You’re playing the game without understanding how to commit

So I’m closing my eyes and returning to a time I understand

And you can play your games like a child and not a man
