~I Know You~

When I see you
I weep.
Your eyes I see through
the pain you keep.

I reach to save you
But you pull back.
Afraid I'll hurt you
So afraid of attack

I only want to comfort you
I only want to set you free
I'll not harm you
I can help if you let me

I know the pain you've seen
I know you've been used
I know where you've been
And that you've been abused

But all that I know
About your past of fear
All that your eyes show
You shed not a tear.

Please listen to me
And know my words are true
Look at me and see
How much I understand you

Why? you ask
Can I know what you feel
Who told? You ask
This cannot be real

Listen and I will tell
All that you ask of me
How do I know you?
Please, come close to me.

There's only one time I see
Who you really are
When I look inside of  me
Because that's who you are.

It's a truly magical thing to find another whom you know so much because your souls are of the same material..this poem is indeed magical..and lovely, and beautiful, and soft and delicate..I could go on for days..   Stunning work.

Butterflies....This is fabulous!!  It is only when we understand ourselves and who we are, that we have the chance to understand others and who they are.  Great writing!!!  I love this piece.  Hang in there, my friend!!  You are a wonderful person...don't ever forget that.

Mirrors my sweet SS...
once again...mirrors.
and your looking oh so lovely tonight *smile*
perfect butterfly...
me thinks your muse is back...(literally)
(think about it) LOL
loves ya, jm


 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.

Very nice. I know how you feel when you love someone to pieces, even as just a friend and they can't trust you, maybe because they are just insecure. But all the same very nice.

Sweet, sweet, touching poem, this poem made me feel sorry for the writer, it must have been quite difficult to write without going crazy . I loved it and really enjoyed the way that it flows .

The whole poem was beautiful but the ending just melted me it was perfect.

It's amazing how others can see ourselves more clearly than we can and how love opens up many new insights that we are otherwise unaware of. Nice poem

This is so good.......I really know where this is coming from and have felt much of this in my life.....You found the words to say what I wanted to say to someone once...and never could.....Bravo

I don't know if I can put into words how beautiful I think this poem is.  You've expressed that oneness, and soul connection in such a heartfelt, touching way.  I have been looking for more of your work because I liked your others so much.  You did not disappoint!

James* Thank you  
First Knight* It's easy to say when there is no pressure and my time to this pehaps has already passed me by.  Thank you for reading.
Lori* J.M. told me to be sure that I read your work...due to the mirror effect of life...she was right I have found a connection in your words and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind reply and for reading.

Beautifully written Butterflies ... to be able to see into another's soul whom we share such similarities with, is a gift indeed ... wonderful poem.

Best wishes,
