The Truth Is... I Love You
the truth is... i love you.
i love you for breaking my heart that day, that hour, that ever-lasting minute
when the days were much cooler
and the leaves of dense forest trees
were changing to a deep amber colour.
i love you for loving me less as the years went by,
for teaching me that i needed to
and to be my own
i love you for blaming me for your brokenness
and in breaking me
to the point of revealing that
what i really was
was your reflection,
i love you for questioning with deep uncertainty the validity of my life path,
for bringing my self-confidence so low
that the only direction
I could continue in
the truth is
your lost soul
waiting to be set free.
