Appreciation

I liked the idea of you, the idea of growing old The never ending laughter, applying your jacket over me when I’m cold. I loved the feeling of waking up next to you Our bodies intertwined The warmth of your skin Me being yours and you being mine. I enjoyed the quiet nights Laying about Telling each other our fears And letting everything come out. I liked the thought of you being my warm and safe home But I think the reason why I liked you so much Is because you never left me alone So I’ll tell you this now & I think it’s about time If you ask me my least favorite thing about you It’s that you barely kept me alive I wasn’t able to learn or to evolve I wasn’t able to become a person with my own terrible thoughts. Hopefully by now you know That I am not afraid to speak my own truth my very favorite thing is not being with you.

A very thought-provoking poem, Mary, touching on the conflict of emotions that often arise in relationships. Can we truly evolve as individuals when in a close relationship? Something I've found tricky in the past. Thank you for a poem that stays with you long after reading.
