What I have here with you,
Can’t be compared,
To anything I’ve dealt with before.
Illusion has been swept away.
Bringing me finally,
To this day.
I see now the difference,
From the infatuation,
The passionate lust,
And what is real.
I used to feel an overwhelming desire,
To let my feelings be known.
A fear secretly grasping at my joy.
Reminding me that this wouldn’t last.
That I would eventually lose this company.
Words would spill over the edge,
Petal to the metal of the relationship.
Every overture available used.
Just to express the passionate feeling.
Lust and fear mistaken as love.
That much more tender,
With the walls and gates lowered.
Only in an effort to feel.
In effort to find the only piece missing.
Now I see and feel much clearer.
The others playing as teachers for my heart.
Showing me to recognize the truth of your company.
Old fears are easily dismissed.
The true feeling is finally here.
Brought to the forefront.
It’s easily seen by your simple actions.
The words sit on the corner of my lips.
I feel the phrase pass between us when we kiss.
These words unspoken,
Can’t be compared
To those spoken so freely by others.
I know I will hear them,
When the time is right.
I know when I do,
The meaning will hold more weight,
Than when they have ever been said before.
You couldn’t ever be compared
To anyone before.
They were never the one,
I was waiting for.
