This Mess-age

I shall clean my backyard before I clean yours,

I am standing in this mess at your backdoor only looking in,
...not knowing where the problem all begin...
...a call to me at two in the morning that seem to never end...
And all I can say to you that this is where I've been.


As I reflect back you stood in my mess at my backdoor only looking in,
...not knowing where the problem all begin...
...and that call to you that seem to never end...
And all you can say to me is that my backyard is not clean now nor was it clean then.

    The fact that I can feel the different emotions while reading your work is powerful.. I truly love how you write straight from your heart. Sometimes people may disregard certain things in the beginning stages of a relationship just to get to know them even more. But as time goes on those certain things resurface and it becomes an issue..not sure if that makes sense to you or not..my best way of explaining it without going into details. enjoyed reading.

    I'm good and thanks for asking..I understand now (mirrored issues). And just like Lisa stated, many of us can relate to this. I'll be reading more of your work.

    Hello, how are you? Thank you for commenting. ...in this case I went to a friend with mirrored issues but gave me a lending hand...
