ME AND YOU .. a poem

I felt I had met you before

But introduced myself just to be sure.

You shook my hand and said hello

And I think even then I wanted to know

What about you drew me so

Why I felt comfortable to sit and talk

You asked great questions seemed quite sincere

I felt each of us wondering where to go from here.

The words we spoke had an impact

That neither of us chose to ignore

So I called you up

You said I’m oh so glad that you called

We agreed to meet

To explore the next phase. 

We talked we laughed we loved we grew

Perhaps much more that either of us knew

We discovered great passion but also great rage

You say I ask questions I say you evade

You want to date I want to relate

We’re each looking for safety but in different ways

I say if I feel I can trust you then I’ll tell you my truth

You say tell me your truth and I’ll see if I can trust you

We let fear intrude and we lost our way

Now neither of us knows quite what to say

Do we say you were good for me but now I must go?

Or do we say if I let go of the fear there’s so much more I can know?

It’s a difficult question we each know that

And we also know that’s where the answer is at
