Better In Time - Poem by Norman Mukwakwami

I never truly understood true love,
Til now.
Looking into your eyes,
Those beautiful eyes,
I get a glimpse of its truth.

In our moments of madness,
We made decisions,
Decisions that split us.
Decisions that inevitable brought us back together.

But today I see something new in you.
A maturity.
An emotional age,
Far older than your years.
I see a sense of calm.
Like a Van Gogh lake surface.

It scares me at times,
How sure you are.
How sure that it's me that you want.
I feel we've been down this road before.
Its deja vu.
The road leading to pain, sadness and heartbreak.

I want to believe that this time it's real.
That this time,
You want it as much as I do.
As much as I always have.
