hello. . .

this is me. . .

you remember me don't you??
I'm the one that writes the words of love,
          the words of life,
                    the words of a heart that will always know love
this is me. . .

this is who I am. . .
          it's always been who I am. . .
                    it hasn't changed

I haven't changed. . .

I'm still the same
the same man who shows his heart a little too much
the same man who shows his feelings a little too much
the same man who hurts, cries, and deals with too much
I'm still the same. . .

I'm the writer of the heart
I'm the knower of the heart
I know what it's like to be in love
I know what it's like to be hurt
I know what it's like to be in pain
I know what it's like to hear the voices
I know what it's like to feel the sting of the needle
I know what it's like to touch the heat of the flame
I know what it's like to cringe at the cold of the word
I know what it's like to pray to the gods and goddesses
because I've done it. . . because I've been there. . .

so you don't have to. . .
you dont' have to tell me that I don't understand. . .
oh sure, maybe I don't know the particulars, the things that led you to where you are
but I know the feelings. . .

for feelings are what I am
love
hate
confusion
ecstasy
pain
joy
happiness
hurt
heat
they are who I am. . .
         who I always will be. . .
                     from now until the end of time. . .

and you say that you know me. . .
you don't know me. . .
you'd like to think that you know me. . .
but you don't. . .

you want to know me??
you want to know my heart
you want to know my feelings
you want to know my soul
you want to know me????

then read. . .
read
read
read
read
read
and then read some more. . .
don't read between the lines
read the lines!!!!

it's all there. . .
I'm all there. . .

you want to know me???

it's all in my words. . .

it's always been in my words. . .

Sven,

Yes it has always been that way as long as I've known you.  It will always be in the words as long as you live.  That much I know.  

Excellent writing.

Sven,
it is all in your words and your words have power. But if you need a friend to tell secrets to, I'm always available.

Sven~

yes yes yes....this is SO YOU! from the
first time i read your work, i've always
thought to myself now here is a guy
who can not only write like there is no
tomorrow but who does so with such style,
such class, and such grace. one just needs
to know how to read your work, and they
can tell much about your heart you soul--
about the person that you are. and i gotta
tell you sweets, it's a simply beautiful
view from here!

take care my friend.

Hi Sven,

Your work is inspirational in so many ways, you convay your feelings whole heartedly, no matter from light blue to dark blue, with compassion and empathy you have revealed the Sven that I have come to admire and love, keep on writing friend you do it so very well, a poet indeed you are.

Love, Cerenity

Oh my, you have created such an emotional piece here. And that feeling that we are known, but not known, because they don't want to put out any honest emotional effort.
This is very strong and special.
Take care, let me know if I can help.

Sven,
   Honest words from an honest heart run parallel, and you have got both.  This was lovely...

Yes, Sven, I see you, and that's why I have always had the utmost respect for you, for your talent, your sensitivity, your class and your honesty.  My heart has always read your lines and has always felt them deeply.  You speak of beautiful truth and the heart upon your sleeve weaves it's way perfectly into all of your poems.

Yes, I see you...I know you...And that is why you are truly one of my favourite poets!

I'm proud to have you as a friend

An excellent poem, this is soooo you with that extra flair and sweet honesty!  

Take care,
Melissa~
