The Mystery Of Love

From a distance
Admired
Jealous of the perfection
Of an oh so perfect verb
Focus in
See
The tricks played by deception
Happiness sought but never found
Cause one was wrapped up in introspection
Of another
Why is this the fate
Change was inevitable I know
I guess it was brought about too quickly
Be Real?
You knew me from the start
I wanted
To avoid the breaking of my heart
It’s the pain of the kick
Of the beast from the lover’s heart
The heart
I’ll love you forever
I’ll love you for always
My baby you’ll be
The song it sang as it beat
Was the music that soothed me

The mystery of love
The loss of a love because
Of unexplained feelings
Because you were
Scared
Scared
Scared
of what you heard yourself say
What I heard you say
Which was sweet as honey to my ears
(you see eyes aren’t the only things that can be blinded)
As you passionately committed yourself
To me
To us
And the concepts that surround True Love
True Love is true
you say
I pushed
you away
How can that be
You say I clung too tightly
But how was I to know
I was scared too
That loneliness
would find me
It did

I’m sorry I say
For the ways of a woman
of me
For demanding, wanting and needing
For clinging, niceness, super positive thinking
For fears, tears, helplessness and apprehension
For living in a fantasy of make-believe and not
Reality
For judging, condemning, pressure
that built up
As a balloon filling quickly and quietly as the latex expands
squeaking but barely audible and when it reaches it maximum level of expansion it
EXPLODES!
with a bang
Loud enough for everyone to hear
Although no one knew or cared to know
It was reaching its potential
I’m sorry for loving you the same
I filled and filled
And never allowed you the time
To release
The mystery
Is True love is not always
Perfect
I’m sorry
more then you know
