Bitter-Sweet

I wish I could let you in my head to see what I see
Putting it to words just doesn’t seem to give it justice.

The things I feel, indescribable
The way I think, sincere

A bond
A link
A powerful connection

What is this?

Trying not to loose myself,
I feel the ups and downs too much

Step forward, now step back,
pause and hold it
Forward again,
we dance

I was scared to move
But need to go deeper

Opening up
Breaking barriers
I’m in too deep?

We ignored what was always there
What was just waiting to be noticed
Passion revealed, tough moments created

Our paths met and joined
Separated
Then crossed again

Now together we look out at the most beautiful storm
Wishing to move as one

I thought it was a dream
Until your truth surfaced with complicated emotions

Hanging off those words
Frozen for now

I love the sweet hesitation in this poem; the awareness of changing emotion and the raising of the passionate.

Good evolution (in relationships) to ponder.
Standing outside yourself and looking at "what it is," in order to find answers is what creates poetry like this.

love it.

Isn't it funny how hard it is to see rationality when in a relationship. I find one often needs to stop everything and step back to gain perspective, however this is easy to say... much harder to do.

Thank you for your comment. I like how you put it... 'Sweet hesitation' and I almost feel like changing the title to that : )
