Poem and Spoken Word: last night – 22/11/21

I carried a hope for you and I to be whole
to know it all together
for positive growth
there might not have been patience
but there really was truth
I could not ask for more but
explanations that I could only view analyse and
so I knew

I prayed for you to love me
to understand me further
as I tried to understand you
there’s no case in not wielding the ability
for self-sacrifice, I know
but if you won’t communicate how can I show
patience knowledge true kindness
but confusion anger upsets reigned
because I didn’t realise what was
going on in your life

this life, our lives perhaps will align
they may not please others but I have to watch out
for those who control their understandings of myself
and have known me over the years

enough, enough,
stop this nonsense, madness,
I can’t promise a thing just like
you cannot promise me the world
because there’s only so much I feel
that you can give
but love me love me
love the world as you love them and you love us
