pridefullysinking in the muddy waterstared at my life preserver.stared as you gave me your hand bothgave me hope but unless i chooseit did no use
what i feel is comparable to rage
intense and overwhelming, it engulfs
submersed in emotion
but on the other pole
the love is like a sweeping blanket
tell me what a family is —
tell me why they love you.
what did you do to earn their love,
what did they do for yours?
The way I feel
when you kiss my lips,
when you caress my soul and
I cannot compare at all.
I don’t know a lot,
but I know love.
