Love’s Promise

.

.

Why must love always…

…cause such immense pain?

We love one another so fiercely;

Has it driven us both insane?

 

To see you suffering…

…day after day;

Trapped in a past I

not only can’t remember…

…nor can either of us

ever truly erase.

 

Knowing I care for a friend;

Whom wrongly desires more from me…

 

So deeply in love with all…

…the complicated women who are me;

And forever terrified of failing…

…the fragile inner child;

Who embraces all…

 …so lovingly and blindly.

 

With everything I am

I Love You!!

I’m so sorry you

have so many

reasons to doubt.

 

Someday, I know

You won’t.
