    she stained me, so
    when your criticism of me never comes
    I am surprised
    when you say, "I understand"
    I blink my eyes
    when you see we are both also individuals, then
    I can breathe
    when you don't want to keep me on a leash
    I feel relief
    that you want to hug me a lot
    swells my heart
    that you aren't mean to me
    feels like art
    she stained me, so
    sometimes it doesn't seem real
    is this how it's supposed to be?
    support and consideration
    I guess so
    I came to this backwards, didn't I
    like the abused child
    expecting to be hit
    but it's not happening this time
    I am still
    standing here in amazed
    still waiting to have to
    run the other way
    she stained me, so
    I will need some time
    it will take a while
    to get used to kind
    to learn to expect
    not to be attacked
    to really think
    someone has my back
    to count on the good
    and not the pain
    to honestly believe in love again
    I think it could be true
    I think I might believe in you

    coming into a loving relationship backward...

    This was so moving...
    It's amazing what effects a negative
    relationship can have on you...
    and how... embracing love again
    can be so difficult...you captured this
    so masterfully...yet so effortlessly
    because it seemed to come
    from the heart...and that's when
    the most powerful poetry begins
    to flow...when it is evoked from
    the heart & soul............
    I heard you speak...from that place.

    Gempis...this was "Awesome"...
