Believing you and believing in you
Entrusting my deepest thoughts and feelings to you
Treasuring every thought, smell, sighting, and hearing of you
Reveling in the sound of your baritone voice and the unique maleness that makes you
Allowing myself to believe you are forever a part of me and I of you
Yielding myself completely- unchaining every inhibition to nurture me and you
Disappointed, devastated, denying it is true- you don’t love me the way I love you

I feel the pain you tried to express in these words and I must say that I am very moved. I love this. Thank you for sharing such a piece of work.

I like the format that you’re using in this poem. I’d love to get feedback on the first chapter I posted of the novels I’m completing now, Soul Surgeon (https://thefredbc.wordpress.com/2014/03/16/soul-surgeon-chapter-1/) and Steam Saint (https://thefredbc.wordpress.com/2014/06/18/chapter-1-of-the-steam-saint/).
I always admire the courage that it takes to be naked about our past, even obliquely and in a way that others may not specifically understand the reference to.
I’ve been on both sides of the dynamic in your poem. I’ve found myself loving incredibly special, beautiful creatures that did not love me in the same way, that were not capable of it yet. (Or was it that I wasn’t the one to unleash what they were actually capable of?) And I’ve also found myself being in a position where others wanted more from me than I felt I should give.
For me, expressing love isn’t about the other. It’s not about reciprocity. It’s about standing true and sincere to who we are. After having taken risks on love over and over again, I’ve come to see that the love is always worth it.
