Clear Thoughts

By I IS ME

How do you start an argument while sharing the dishes 
Or while cuddling on the couch discussing vacation wishes 
How can I regroup and find out where this is coming from 
Find out why when I give chase, you continue to run 
 
I asked for an audience and if she doesn't agree I'll leave her alone 
During honest conversation I learn from where this fear has grown 
I learned that this is a queen that never sat on her throne 
That those before me never gave her heart a home 
 
Sneaky ass liars, busy self prioritizing 
Shattered her dreams of someone else doing the idolizing 
Carefully she explained all the hurt and pain 
That she had shed her last tear and swore to never cry again 
 
But how can she compare herself and them, to us 
Hell she's comparing real love to a fantasy, lust 
We realize that we need to back things up and build more trust 
And maybe this time she'll have better luck 
 
 But it's hard tearing down walls that you have fortified with bad choices 
And even harder, since you wont stop listening to their voices 
I am but one battling so many, for your heart 
There also seems to be some former lovers that still want a part 
 
You, yourself seems to be a rope in a game of tug of war 
You are being pulled both ways, but what is everyone pulling for 
They are pulling for you to stay as is, used, abused, and confused 
They like you not knowing that on this course you are destine to loose 
 
I'm pulling for you to realize who you truly are 
You think that you're an asteroid, but I'm telling you that you are a star 
I want to take you, Boo, and clear that cloud from around your mind 
Prove to you that the pain and confusion is there by the design 
 
Maybe with this knowledge our lives can truly begin 
Maybe with this knowledge we can start over as friends 
Build up a new foundation fortified with a new reality 
Forgetting the outside world, the only brick and mortar needed is you and me

    Our calloused wounds are our walls, thick--Saving us from the burdens of being hurt once again, never realizing those very callouses hold the pain deep, unable to seep--Festering deep under the skin, corrupting what we were trying to protect--from within. I enjoyed your poem, it was deep and quite enjoyable to read!

    We totally agree with your comment, expressing emotions or airing them out is a civilized manner allows healing, thanks

    Very honest on a hard subject. One always Hope's sleeping beauty will awake but not many have the fortitude to wait. Liked the finish very much.
