Something you should know

There is something you should know

I would want you without your tattoos, piercings, hair

dye .. all the things that bring brightness and

beguilement to your plumage

I would want you if you knew no one but the few persons

on your window washing route, or even the ones who

gathered with you behind the same McDonald’s after

closing.

How, though, would you know? How can you take my word

for this when I only met you as you are, after all?

It is true, when I met you, already you were brightly

colored and studded with shining bits of metal, dressed

in seductive animal flesh, riding on a chrome horse.

But I wanted you…

And I am not into tattoos, piercings, hair dye, all the

things that bring brightness and beguilement to your

plumage.

I am not into the people that you have mentioned

knowing .. I judge not a person’s worth by how many

people come to listen to them wail, how many photos are

taken, or how big their paycheck is, but by how true to

their heart they are, how kind to others. I don’t care

who you know!

I have looked past these things, to see a man who is

well worth the knowing. If I can look past these

things, I can look past all things.. if you fall, I

will reach out my hand to help you up again; if you

have to crawl, I will lower myself beside you so that I

can still look into your eyes and hear your words; and,

you know this, because if you must fly high and fast,

still, I am here, waiting .. not able to keep pace, but

ever trusting in your return.

Just so you know.

Something you should know
