My Judgment

I’m trying to strip everything away
Everything that has happened
Everything that has been said and done
Just to remember the day I stared at love
In the eyes of a stranger
Just to remember how it was that I wanted you
Naked
Piercing my back with your nails
As you have done so many times
And yet I allow the curse of my judgment
Stand in the way
Of your giant heart
And I am so wrong
Because I know why you have become my judgment
You never had a chance
Because I am all about one thing
Myself

How many times we try to build a relationship with someone else only to find we want them to be what we expect not who they really are. Beautiful

Mark, this short version of poem hit the spot which many able to relate because they had similar dot in themselves. Realizing it is giant step for changes, but sadly, not all that lucky. lovely.

Hi Freya. I wonder if this poem met your assumption when you read the title. But it is about how I (or anyone) can be so judgmental of a lover even though we were so captured by their style when we first met. They become buried by our insistence of control and disapproval of their actions. Yet that person who you wanted so badly is in there somewhere. Thank you for commenting and I hope you are doing well.
