deep dark brown eyes
of one who does not demonstrate the intelligence of a supreme being
yet has the understanding and intelligence of the deeper meaning of life
who was to know?
taken for granted
how foolish was i to think and dismiss your feelings
never understanding your depth of love
your unconditional acceptance of my ugliness
my careless demonstration and neglect
i was supposed to know better
i was supposed to be intelligent
better than you
was less of a person
with all my knowledge and understanding i was the lesser being.
i ask for your forgiveness of my ignorance of life
my arrogance has brought me to my knees......
