Understanding Is The Key

All I want to start is for us both to listen,
understand the best we can about each other.
The time we missed, the things we're finding that don't make sense.
Listen intent to find out where and what our youth to now has brought.
That shaped us made gave us our strengths weaknesses and fears,
understand so we can fully know the best we can why we sometimes act irrational or various ways as we sometimes can.

I just want to know you through,
your life top to bottom all you're willing to give for a connection that will strengthen our unbreakable bond.
I want to understand all the things that have always confused, frustrated and haunted me.
Leaving me feeling useless and weak for my inability to help you find the relief you seek.
I want to understand to give you the happiest life that you deserve you've done so much to help so many others yet next to none have given you your honors.
I wish to understand so from now until the end I can always help you work through the pain frustration and anger I know you hold from many years of being under rated and disrespected.

I desperately desire to give you all my secrets,
my pain humiliations and fears and maybe help you understand the rage I hide.
It doesn't make me a dangerous scary guy.
If only you'd understand and when I find the way to explain why it's so hard for me to truly give up all that trust,
even directly right now to the woman I truly love.
I maybe wrong in all manner needing some guarantee before I give you the key to all that's me.
It's only you I'm willing to tell and share all my life's journey the hope, extreme despair shame humiliation and fear, as well as all my happiness joy and cheer.

I never share those years with anyone,
but for you I'll put down all my defenses disarm the protective guns.
I want us to understand what keeps us here holding our love unbreakable a special thing no matter the times that have been bad.

Please don't hate or resent me for the wrongs I've done.
I want us to understand the best we can all of our moves the good and bad.
So I beg thee please let's find the way to fully open up our hearts with trust.
Listen in knowing that all we share is truth no fear of cutting words or judgment at each others hands.

I offer now to give to you the rare offer given to only you.
I will share it all in a show of love and good faith to you.
Try to help you know my roots my moves through life I want to give it all to you.
I offer this with my heart full of trust.
What say you are you willing to at lest listen to me ask questions and I'll do my best to help you understand my many odd ways so hopefully I won't come off as such a slag.

I truly trust you you're intelligent I know you can make much sense of a lot of my chaotic ways once I've shared my stories of many many days. You'll find I'm not a total miserable scary threat,
you know I'm truly loving with only pure passion and need for you.

After I share my lives times,
It's your decision rather or not to share.
Either way I love you still.
I'll be happy to finally let you know my entire tale.
So I let you choose whatever you feel comfortable with there,
you also decide where you'd like me to start with many questions that I can answer as
I go about my days to cover all there is from my travels about.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
