(a nice one to read with the music video below playing in the background…per usual.)

another near miss
all the times you look
and almost crash right into
this talk of destruction
and you want me to lose myself
na-ah babe
you misjudged me

see i know love
and i’ve had it forever
and i love what’s inside
the imperfection around all of us

there’s a reason that i am
and everything i do
but i’ll sell you a line
maybe one or two
and you can use them
they’ll undo

another near miss
all the time we took
and almost fall right into
this talk of corruption
and you want me to lose myself
na-ah babe
you misjudged me

see i don’t fear love
and we’ve had it forever
and i love what’s inside
the imperfection in all of us

so i’ll hold up this mirror
and let you see everything i do
and maybe you’ll crack
just a line or two
and he’ll use them
they’ll undo

oh yes i understand
oh yes
take my hand
oh no
quicksand

see this is my heart
and did you ever ask
what’s not broken
pinball machine player
eager token

another near miss
your head in a book
and almost sunk right into
this talk of presumption
but i won’t lose myself
na-ah babe
you misjudged
you

my submission this week for #oneshotwednesday @onestoppoetry. happy anniversary to them!

if i’m to learn from this, yes, if i’m to be honest – i must admit that i misjudged you. i shouldn’t have listened & believed their version of what you are. i’m truly sorry for that.

except, maybe that is how you prefer it. perhaps that is your test; to see who will truly love you. is it that you veil your inner nature, beauty & splendor until that time in which one falls at your feet and begs for sanctuary? is that when your arms unfold? your arms enveloped me and they’re so warm – it’s so very safe, here in your bosom.

are you telling this gypsy that he can give up his sandals & walking staff?

he might even listen, this time.

(watch while listening to the song…. “take me home…”)
