REBLOGGED: I limited you…from the start

My dear friend, Jayne, just posted the following.  I am verklempt:

 

I wrote this from my own experience but

I dedicate this to you Hy, a fellow artist of the grandest colors.

.

I painted him well

A Bruegel or a Van Eyk

Such a fine and clever forgery

to sandbag my love like a dike

.

A barricade,  in essence

Such a lovely man as a front

How ideal my set up was

How beguiling was the hunt!

.

You were limited from the start

Only now can I see the flaw

I lessened,  I padded, I believed

Your benefits were more than what you are

.

This is NOT to downplay your worth

a goldmine I would never give back

It’s that now I can see clearer

The desires in which I lack

.

I was so engrossed in the process

We travelled the realm of sublime

Your body and soul exquisitely matched

at a level intertwined with mine

.

But, the facet of love within me

that matched you – as I still wanted more

has limits, as I, in succumbing

which tells me, I need to explore

.

“Eyes Up!” for the prize of my heart

Who am I to settle for seconds?

The lesson: Pain is a call I must hear

” There IS a truer love that beckons”

  1. I had to look up “verkempt”. I am very verkempt as well…and I wish I had written such a beautiful proof of the affection and friendship that I feel for you. I hope you are hanging on My Hy.

    Love,
    Dawn

  2. I say, Wow, how simply wonderful and truly thoughtful of your friend, Hy. I was worried when we (your readers) didn’t hear from you for a few days. Wishing you well :)

What say you?
