(Penned while on a trip with my future wife as I discovered how she was different than all the others before her who had left me hurting and confused in love.)

When I am with you,
Stars donít shine any brighter;
They shine as they are.
Reality smiles.
I donít seek escape from life:
Only clarity.
People make mistakes
When they seek relationships
To give them refuge.
A relationship
Should offer understanding:
Never confusion,
Never distortion.
You are not just a life-line
Of desperation
But a ship of truth.
I donít need distorted views
Of stars, or flowers,
Or birds, or music;
But I seek to know these things
As they truly are:
As they should be known.
Show me a thousand loves lost,
And Iíll discover
Care mistaken for love.
Emotions can be helpful,
Clothed in honesty.
If I seek a star,
Let it shine as it exists:
Not as poets dream.
Our relationship
Is not a refuge for two
But open sharing.
Reality lives!
So I am never confused
When I am with you.

I love this poem. I know exactly how u feel. I feel the exact same way about someone right now. But i was trying to explain the poem to someone else and they were confused or whatever. I was hoping you could email me a clear explanation of the poem that i can show them. Because I'm not to good with words. But its nice i love it.

Dear Eddie,
I don't recall ever seeing this particular poem. Thank you for sharing it. I am so glad that you and that beautiful wife of yours know true love and that my husband and I also know true love. So man hearts are broken on the search for someone who can truely love and be loved equally and wholly and for as long as the two shall live. Your friend, Sissy

sounds like a good start to are right, relationships should never be a way out of something else one isn't happy with, like reality but a way into a better reality
