Being Gentle

I want you to know
The respect, the love
That I feel for you
The true and deep admiration

I need you to know
The fear, the confusion
That I go through daily
The bone-chilling numbness

I want you to know
My heart, my thoughts
That inside this shell
The purity of my intentions

I need you to know
The doubt, the pain
That lurks within
Darkening my inner sunlight

Your gentleness
My roughness
Your love for me
My uncertainty
Your peace
My complete distraction

Your gentleness helps me not at all
