Pride (a poem by Jack)

I’m not trying to know you.. Only love you..

Every last drop… Submerge myself within you until what’s me is lost and unidentifiable..

And then I’ll love myself truly.. All that I do is for you.. Why doubt my love.. Why doubt us.. Why doubt yourself… Because I break you down to build us… Because I give myself to others so that we may prosper..

I look in the mirror and see tears… Not avid weeping… But a slow trickle… The slow rhythmic arc across the cheek circumnavigates and communicates… It expresses the exact nature of our situation..

A slow.. Steady… Gradual crash… Unto a cold… Calculated surface.. I see the tear as it falls… Twinkling through time and taking so much anguish with it… Destroying any joy in it’s path…

Let my love express how it wills…
If my love crumbles you.. Let it be… If my love smothers you.. Well.. Suffocate and baptize yourself in something worth sanctifying…

They tell me I shouldn’t love you…
But I do…
They taught me not to love you…
But I do…
Everyday they give more and more reason not to love you…
But I do…

Despite it all… I learned to love what can love me more than anything else…

And I don’t need to know you… To love you…

But through loving you… I will eventually know you… And I will learn to call you by your true Name..
