Say You Love Me

“Opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… That is being naked.” ~ Rob Bell”


I don’t know how to act normal when it comes to you

Whatever you would call it

Sometimes I can carry on without screwing things up

Every now and then I can make it seem uncomplicated

Different than it is in my mind

But often I get stuck on the words to say next

When all I want to say is “I give a damn… many damns… and I’m here, always here because… because…”

I can’t say it. I can’t just say it. Not out of nowhere

So what do you say when you can’t help but love someone who doesn’t want to know?

Someone who’s tired of hearing the words…

Someone whose heard it enough to be numb to the sound of it?

I guess I’ll try to slip it in when I say goodnight, maybe drop the “I”

That always makes it sound aimless

You know, to hide the true intentions of what I’m saying…

Because it’s too much, too scary to be completely honest when you’ve been there before

It’s easy to bleed when you let it all out

And when you don’t have a clue of what’s on the other side

But I still remember the beginning, the fact that it was different

I could have a large quantity of lovers if I settled for the usual and unoriginal,

If only I could ever be that tasteless

If I was shallow, maybe

Yet, here I am, ocean deep in emotion

So, how do you deal?

What do you say?

Is it best I say nothing at all?

Leave it all here for now…

About Me

– I am an ancient soul, in a modern body, with a futuristic state of mind.


“Learning from experiences is one of the ways in which we decide if experience may frighten us, weaken us or make us self-doubt, but it may also make us stronger. Sankofa teaches there are valuable lessons to be learned from the past.”
