How To Tell You - Poem by Kevin Carney
I don’t know how to tell you…
I think it’s up to you…
Do you know what you really want?
If only you could see.
I’d treat you like a princess…
It could be like the perfect fairy tale…
I’d see you for the woman you should be…
And not what they all perceive.
You have had your ups and downs…
Inside and out you turned yourself around.
Never knowing where to stand.
Only to take that fall,
over and over again.
Can you make up your mind?
Who is it going to be?
You walk the fine line…
Of what really should be…
Or what really could never be…
It’s a quandary that you try so hard,
not to think about…
I don’t think you would really accept the answer.
Are you really loved by him?
Is he just using you?
Or better yet are you just using him?
Is this what you really want?
Is it a picture you painted in your mind?
Could it be a want that is not fully there?
It’s up to you to look at it all…
Could you ever really understand,
what perfect love is?
You been battered and bruised…
Rocky the road you’ve traveled.
In search of what you think it is….
Knowing full well….
That it lasts for a fleeting moment of time.
You give yourself so easily…
Is there nothing I can say?
Is there nothing for me to show you anymore?
I want to hold you so tight…
To give you a love you would never believe…
You take the steps forward…
Only to back away.
leaving me always wondering…
The hurt and frustration just won't go away...
Should I just drift away?
Still I am willing,
to hang on a little longer.
No matter the consequence it will bring.
