A Knowing

Something Inside of Me

There is something inside of me

That you didn't put there

Something that crept into my soul

While I was unaware

Can it be that we alone - are whole?

And n o one needs another

To complete their soul?

Perhaps upon the journey

we sometimes feel unsure

so we reach for anothers hand

to feel more secure

But we came ino this world

A shining light

That's strong enough

to take us through

the darkest night.

There is something inside of me

that needs to say

That I don't have to NEED you

and that its okay

Wouldn't it be better if I just said

I would like you to be

part of my life instead?

What are we without the fear

and insecurity

Perhaps we are then exactly

what we're supposed to be?

And can't we just walk through this

experience

side by side

and be who we are

without the emotional ride?

There is something inside of me

that makes me who I am

and I don't want to lose her

for the sake of a man

Who I am and what I want

and what I feel and do

are parts of me that come from me

and not an extension of you.

But if this is too much for you

this inability to possess or own

perhaps what is inside of YOU

needs to be alone

When you discover that part of you

that can live without the fear

You can contact that part of me

that would love to have you here.

Ah the complexities and dynamics of the relationship between selves and the others. And yes, you have to be whole first before you can be a part of another. Nice poem. Thanks for sharing ;D

Yours is much more poetic;but this is a succinct ~ Individuality is a personal mode of self that is at our core... Others wish to own it more to embellish their worth without success for it belongs not to them but in the thought of only one the self of its resident individual...

Very thought provoking and a rightful concern...

I agree completely. I may have been more poetic but you certainly said it far more intellectually than I ever could.

This is lovely Moony. Another piece of you heart revealed with such beauty. Does he know, does he share and comply with your sentiment? 'And n o one needs another To complete their soul?'

I do, I will always need love and where else to obtain it to complete my soul?

Thank you Ralwus! I have no idea if he knows or not, I think he does and I think he does share my sentiments. I also will always need love, I think we all do, but I am not sure it's completes our souls, perhaps this is a forum we should start and ask around...?
