In Case You Didn't Know

I understand that my values have changed. In ways to frame a point we can't help complain. Distract a conscience with tasks to entertain. As well as moments uncaptured to drive insane.

Now sorry I know I am not as open as I should be. Listen but choose a sentence that goes indefinitely. Add a pause to close a thought so complete. To then cry or get enraged to speak.

Situations we vow to not reenact. Learn a partner in order to adapt. Noone is perfect, the concept is wrapped. To then start a day with the idea of subtract.

I love you like a teen who breathes for their phone. Showing is impossible but saying makes it known. Actions can force an emotion inert like dough. But my feelings are legit in case you didn't know.

I'm a sensitive guy, it's quite hard to admit. Watch the words because then I'm unfit. Contemplate life often at times I'm convinced. That ending things is the way to finish the script.

Arguments are common and I understand. But emotional abuse is not a way of romance. Maybe it's the idea to stiffen up or enhance. But it screws with my head more than some plants.

Rock bottom is a phase we wish to never reach. The fact that most of us do is sad indeed. Been there but not out of it it seems. Can't help thinking about the criticism received.

As couples we fight, laugh, love and help. There is no SOS. We do things ourselves. When in pain we say our farewells. Think about it for days because love repels.

Time doesn't stop since it continues to grow. Affection is required but the process is slow. Fly over the negativity like a drone. Yet the love remains in case you didn't know.

I have my reasons for why I still hold on. In the depths of my heart I know that I belong. Not easy to visualize but it's rarely wrong. Set aside the hate and let bygones be bygones.

Your heart is pure with love above your sleeve. Strong personality who doesn't like to repeat. Inside her head at times still processing grief. Tough with words but respectful at least.

Short temper and pretty unpredictable. Hurtful with wordplay it's impressive though. Drags an emotion to damage a radius. Explosions released at a partner are ridiculous.

Regardless of all I fell for your purity. You do enough and It's clear to see. I've done my wrongs but at least I never cheat. Appreciate your efforts no one will disagree.

Pleasure within deception she's throwing stones. Works hard enough to pay for everything she owns. I respect those values. It honestly hits home. Love within us is ideal in case you didn't know.

Years pass and life happens. Obsessed with an image that rains fashion. Doing without thinking there's a reaction. An emotional murder killed by an assassin.

Comfort brings down a tungsten wall. Opens the demons within us we never wanted to recall. Putting flames in hope we lose by default. Taking in loathe with a grain of salt.

Love is an abstraction we will never fully understand. Unless you take a tab of acid by the hand. Freeing the mind in ways a conscience expands. Yet again do research or else you'll be damned.

Confessions to stress sorry but I try. At times I'm exhausted I won't deny. Born with errors with faith being applied. I admit my doings I'm that kind of guy.

Hey my love. This world won't get any easier. Although we do our parts before we're buried below. Don't hold things in like a cargo. Just let it all out as if you're some ammo.

We'll overcome struggles and success will be shown. Have plenty of stories like trips to the metro. Keeping a focus straighter than an arrow. You're forever etched in my soul in case you didn't know.

Daniel Fernandes

I am a poet who enjoys the use of half rhymes. Born in Portugal but raised in Newark NJ. Spend most of my time trying to make ends meet weather it is to write for contests or do overtime at my current job. I also even try being an Uber driver. Sadly it is never enough. Still pushing and not giving up. My goal in life is to become a writer and have my poems appreciated by many to show how they are not alone. We all struggle and sometimes it needs to be written to ease that pain. In the process so beauty is penned and expressed. more…

      Thank you for your comment. I appreciate the kind words. It's difficult to get recognition. It pleases me every time someone notices the effort. I wanted to emphasize on a relationship with a partner who's emotionally abusive. Show how regularlless of the pain and patience involved the love between the two are as ideal as it can be. Thank you for reading. I appreciate you taking the time to write a comment.
