Am I dreaming

by Em   Sep 4, 2017

you look longingly into my irises and I blush
with hope you can't see into my darkest thoughts
because anxiety gets the better of me sometimes
making me question your ability to love me as I am
even when I don't want to get out of bed in the morning
or when the only emotion I feel is numbness
as I overthink things that have already passed;
things I couldn't control even if I tried.

when you hold me close to you all my worries slip away
in the safety net of your love -
I thank you for allowing me into your life (now my universe)
and loving me for the person inside.

    This is such a beautiful poem by our Em.

    It speaks to me of giving yourself to someone and allowing yourself to trust, when in the past that trust has been misplaced and abused.

    I could write volumes on this poem but they are totally unnecessary as many have voiced my opinions already.

    I think all would all agree "lovely" is enough.

    Thank you for sharing this with us all (7)

    Oh my, Duchess, first of all, the title is a question...and I hope it becomes a statement soon. Enjoyed reading this, as usual, full of happiness to read another heart melting piece from you. Sweet!

    Em, I totally understand this. You really need someone in your life who accepts you for you. In a good relationship it's all about acceptance and understanding and taking a person at their best and worse. These are the relationships dreams are made of. Well done my friend -hugs!
