Take Me As I Am,

Hear Me,
          Listen to me with you heart,let your guide be your soul
          hold me up so high, let your love talk this time

Speak to me,
          Allow your mouth to utter the very words 
          your heart has not yet spoken 

Listen to me,
          Hear what my tongue has professed
          and not what my lips have concealed
          wanting me to feel what you feel

See me,
          Look into my eyes, and see this beautiful butterfly
          just waiting to take off into the sky and touch life
Carry me,
          Lift me up when my spirits are down
          when I am consumed with fear
          afraid to breathe, this breath of life

Trust in me,
          Believe in all that I have shown you, in
          all that I am, and everything that I do

Love me,
          Caress me with your hands, all that you feel,  
          take me as I am, paint all the colors that you see
          acknowledge my imperfections and love each one tenderly 

Water me,
            Let your spring flow so deep within my roots 
            flourishing  me with all your sweetness

Plant me,
            Hide me in your heart,   just beneath your wings
            like a seashell buried in the sand, I only want to be

    Tyesha, thank you for your comments on "Hungry and Homeless Americans." Your poem conveys the same desire for acceptance as "Wrappings Give Way." You have great talent, Carolyn

    I want to thank you for your kind comments on my poetry you certainly do have a wonderful heart - You know I really do love this poem it is what love should be and it's so rare in these times to see people actually realizing and expressing the unending value of love - These days it seems that sex is what most people attribute love to - Don't get me wrong I'm far from celibacy but its the spiritual bond that makes it all so beautiful - I loved your poem it is truly a gift to read - God Bless, MJ

    Tyesha - What a beautiful and deep poem in regards to your inner-self - You know I think you deserve no less than what you have written - Most of my life I was on drugs and that type of lifestyle greatly hinders a person's view of what true love actually is and destroys relationship's - My wife has changed my entire being both physical and spiritual - She has nursed me back to health over the last two years and I give her what you have penned and I hope you find this also - YF4L - God Bless,MJ
