“Dear You”

Dear You,

 

I cannot pretend you don’t exist now that I know that you do,

The moment you spoke, I lost myself in your YOU…

I cannot show you what you aren’t ready to see,

Cannot make you stop loving her, and start loving me.

 

I cannot make this make sense to you, or even myself,

But I realized something the moment you left—

 

You were a stranger that my heart knew so well,

You’re no magician, yet I’m under your spell.

Willing to be everything that you need,

If you take off your blinds and decide to SEE me.

I see you. I see you in perfection flawed in direction.

I see you with my soul, I feel your reflection.

 

Awed at my capacity and intensity to feel,

Questioning my mind for what my heart knows is real.

If a friend I must be, then that role I will take,

For your absence would cause my heart to break.

 

As I listen to your heart break, I hear the echo of my own,

For I am now lost, because now mine you own.

My heart merged to yours when you held me so tight,

Afraid, Nervous, and Ashamed to tell you last night.

The moment you spoke, I lost myself in your YOU…

I cannot pretend you don’t exist now that I know that you do,

If I must be a fool, allow this fool to be true,

I can, do, and will be in love with you.

 

Seems with love I’m always playing tag,

I placed my heart in your carry -on bag.

 

A friend.

  1. @ Tankiso- The picture is more of a subliminal message for the intended audience than anything to do with the piece itself 😉

    It’s a beautiful mountain structure on the other side of the world.

    Sometimes you have to look beyond the eyes…

  2. Resonant. Simply stated. Denying a heartbreak can only last so long. Acknowledging the loss in a continuing moment – like a pain unremitting – can bring sadness. And beauty. The simple truth is: if you love someone, you love them. Period. Do they love you? is a different truth.

    Nicely written.
