Currently, i am in love but am unsure... I am broken and upset, not my actual self and this person sympathizes with me and this is why i probably love them in the first place because they can see me for who am i and are not judgmental.

The presentaltPatricia Gibbons 03/06/08 04:47am

Oh, when I look at you I see
more in life and more in beauty
you give seeds for they can only grow
yet, come autumn there may not be any of me left to know
I know the voice I hold inside is little
and the heart I love with brittle
but I couldn't love you any more and won't miss a freckle
Yet, if only on that grass I could hold you
as it would be tightly and truthfully as I swear I do
Before I was sleeping
and just open and weeping
Do you see still see me as obscure, insecure and broken?
I grew wrong leaving me unopened

Now, I have admitted all my vulnerability
I hope you will be able to find me
as without the confidence to read your mind clearly
I could hurt you unintentionally
and without you just wonder around aimlessly
Trying to find you trying to break outside
Even though I like it quiet and need to hide
But soon I will be awake and will be by your side

I will try and mop up those tiny pieces
which I naively turned to faeces

All these words I have meant
please open my sealed present
