One of 30 poems I wrote in a series about my experience and feelings inside a relationship.

Thank you for being rock solid for me
Allowing me to simply be
Give me space to come crashing down
To sing out of key to smile or frown

Thank you for being willing to stay
Each time I tried to run away
Hold me, kiss me till it passes
When I stare through gloomy glasses

Love me cos I'm yours to keep
Hold me while I fall asleep
Let me go so I can move
Marvel when I'm in the groove

When my brain and heart short circuit
Read the manual on how to work it
When I'm rushing slow me calmly
Be my strength when I go barmy

Understand my every act
No matter how the odds are stacked
And when I want to run and hide
Open your heart I'll climb inside

When I am loving sweet and tender
Welcome me, reflect, surrender
Give your life right by my side
And love each second of the ride

Hi Scott, I absolutely love your poem and your style of writing. I like the message of unconditional love--acceptance--vulnerability--self awareness. Keep writing!

I guess that everyone would like to hear such words ;) Very personal poem, it takes courage to talk about own flaws and weaknesses, but once we admit we have them and realize there is this one special person who accepts and help us overcome them, everything seems better ;)
