I’m expecting you to respond to me.
Did you just feel what I wrote down?
When I saw your lines
I recognized them for what they were:
And a key.
Trusting you to carry my words for me and
Asking you not to open them up again for anyone but me.
I love you poem,
yet as I write
Please keep in mind that my words are not defining you-
Showing not merely another poem-
They are reflecting me.
But it takes a broken pride
To not hide the flaws of my personality
And let my failures teach me a lesson.
