Look Beyond - Poem by Joshua Thomas Gage

You have to look beyond the outer shell
That is the only way you are going to tell
If they are there for you all the way
Or if they are looking for a new someone every day

I admit its hard to tell
Sometimes I wonder if she came from hell
The nights that we sit there and fight about
Anything that comes to might no doubt

You know this is not what i need
I have not come because of greed
I am willing to give it all
Just so that we will not fall

All the way down to where we started
We climbed the ladder both true hearted
Now we are at the top
Stumbling to stay up, lets just stop

We are supposed to be here for each other
Instead of fighting with one another
Our love is strong and intertwined
Lets not let it make us blind

We need to keep our vision clear
Of what we are doing now and here
Please for the love of us
Lets stop fighting and be a couple without the fuss

Ill give you my word straight from my heart
I will stay here for you till death due us part
No matter how mad you might get me
I will never leave you at sea

All alone to fend for yourself
You see your in my heart on the very top shelf
No one could ever take you down
So baby please don't ever frown

I'm here to help you with anything you need
I would do anything for you even bleed
You do know that i have never felt
Anything like this, it makes me melt

Every time you are with me
All i see is your very beauty
As i gaze deep down into your eyes
Its as if theres no such thing as demise

I just wish i could keep it just me and you
Baby do me a favor and stay true
Don't do anything that i wouldn't do
And forever we will be without the color blue

The sadness that others have in their life
We don't need that strife
So with that said i will say
I love you now, always, and forever ok

    Joshua, This is very emotionaly packed poem.
    Unfourtunaly we often forget where it was we came from when we reach the top rung of the ladder. As you said in your poem, take the time to stop and breath, just breath.
    Dont ever take for granted each others love, or you just might wake up at the bottom of the pit, no rope, no ladder, no love, no matter.
