Love Is Patient - Poem by Miss Thang
If love is always patient, and love is always kind,
Then you’ll understand when I say I need to take my time
If love isn’t selfish, then you could understand
I need to take some time for me – without a man
You go back and forth with what you show me
And yet, you expect for me to believe you completely
But, I can’t do that this time, I can’t be naïve.
I’ve spent too much time with tears running down my cheeks.
I do love you, I can’t say I don’t.
But as much as I’d like to I just won’t
Won’t rush in - won’t go blind
I can’t do it, not this time
It’s time for me to do me
It’s time for me to really be
Be alone with myself and my hurts and my fears
Get rid of this pain, get rid of these tears.
I know you don’t understand
You think you should be the man
The one to make me happy, the one to save my life
You want to marry me and make me your wife.
Baby, know that I believe that’s how you really feel
But, understand I’m not secure in the fact that it’s real.
You want to be ready – I know you do.
You want someone consistently there for you.
If you love me like you say you do
You’ll let me do this and not make it about you.
This isn’t about you – it’s about me
Doin what I need to do, becoming who I need to be.
I can’t be right wit anyone right now.
I can’t do it because I don’t know how.
I know how to be hurt; I know how to be mad
I know how to be comfortable always being sad.
I’m not complete, I’m not whole.
I have pains deep down in my soul.
I need to let ‘em go and I have to do it alone.
It’s all I’ve ever felt, and all I’ve ever known
