Daring love

I have loved

And suffered loss

 

I have loved

Imperfectly

With all my might

Only to see

My imperfections

Magnified

My humanity

Targeted

And my heart

Mutilated

 

I have loved

And seen my sanity

Eroded by conceptual folly

By expectations

By lack Of understanding

And the cruelty

Of human nature

 

And your pig

Trampled on

The precious gifts

I gave you

 

Still I dare

To love you

Even more so

But it will be

From within

The fortress

Of wisdom

From inside

My armor

And the beauty

Of forgiveness.

This, for some reason, reminds me of lines from the movie, "Princess Bride" when Buttercup tells Wesley/Dread Pirate Roberts that she has loved more deeply than a pig like he would ever hope to understand...etc. Maybe it is because I can imagine the words being said the same way. With sadness--mourning, with a sense of loss...and yet with a freedom because you didn't stoop to the same level and you understand that forgiveness means freedom.
