Sometimes in life there are so few answers
To so many questions

A terrible thing has happened
I have brought despair to one in need of repair
A woman I often like
Whose English is not like mine
Tending to bend my mind in such a way
So that I often misunderstand her words
Thinking she was attacking me
My life
My loves
My ways
When perhaps all it was
Was a woman standing alone in a corner
Trying to be noticed
By being cute

I cannot undo the harm I have done
And I do not ask for forgiveness
I only ask for understanding

U made me think about the process of people learning one another in a relationship. It takes time, and there are so many mistakes we make along the way. Understanding & patience goes a long way in keeping us sane! Great write!

Don't worry. She will understand. It was not intended. Though misunderstandings between woman are rare compared to misunderstandings between women and men, they happen. Just being honest towards her will get things straight again.
Loved that one.
Take care okay?

I think understanding is one of the greatest gifts one can receive and give for that matter.

Super Girl.
This is very good.

does get in the way and
how we perceive things.
Excellent write all ya

go from there.
