I Want You To Understand
I really did love you,
good start right?
Why not go right to the heart,
that failing, rasping, begging mass
of organic dependence,
that piece of my body torn apart.
I waited, not just because I wanted you,
I did, on so many levels,
I waited because I needed you,
I did because you were that special
that sort of magical peril we all try to cross,
and sometimes fall,
and sometimes fall really hard.
I didn’t fall that hard though,
you’d made it clear,
you weren’t ready to love me,
so I took off,
well I went my way,
gained some distance,
I might be distracted,
and I was for years, distanced, happy,
sadness had gone with the breeze,
until that sunny afternoon in May.
I knew I could stil love you,
Again, I just want you
