Loving Me Ain't Easy

Loving Me Ain't Easy

A Poem by Jenney Clark
"

I write with my heart :-)

"
















Because I am a writer,

My feelings run deep,

But that don’t matter,

Love is hard to keep.

 

I run wild,

You like restraint,

I challenge your mind;

You play with my head,

 

I feel with my heart,

You go with your gut,

I bleed when I hurt,

But it’s others you trust

 

I am quite frivolous,

 But you like practical,

I feel with my senses,

You think I am nuts.

 

I obsess more than care,

Everything I am not, you crave.

I am egoistic, you prefer proud,

I give my heart, you yearn more,

 

You say, I am insane, stubborn, melodramatic,

 I agree that’s me!

And hyperactive, independent, radical,

Certainly in varying degree,

 

I love as intensely

As I live completely.

All the things you want to flee!

Before you understand me.

 

If it’s the mundane you want,

Forget sassy old me..

May boredom be your reward,

 And predictability, your company.

 

Loving me needs strength,

Be a lion among men,

Then maybe my love,

You will be worthy of me.

 

Be the yin to my yang.

Anything I lack, complete.

Fill my mad, empty spaces.

While I complement ye.

The poet/poetess is indeed a coiled spring of vibrant emotion and take a little adjusting too, though the spoils of the fruit will be rich, plentiful and well worth a harvest gathering if a relationship with one such person is preserved with and given time to cultivate !

A joyous self-portrait of fulfilling sentiment and poetic harmony !

Wow! Your words sound like a proclamation of a true Arian spirit!
Wild and strong for everyone but tameable and vulnerable to the people she loves..!
Loved the rhyming, flow and the metaphors used!
Great write!

Different but ones that compliment each other in many ways or fashions. A splendid poem...:).............

I think you captured the difference between men and women and how we tend to relate to each other. I'm not sure if it's possible for us to ever really understand each other but I suppose we keep trying....

Your poem emphasises the main problem of peace and unity. Without mutual compromise, there can be no real compatibility. Despite it's light hearted tone, I interpreted your poem as an analogy of the lack of uderstanding political and cultural diffences of the world today

This was very multidimensional and my favorite part..."be the yin to my yang"...
Well done, Jenney!

Thank you for your sincere appreciation. I do so appreciate it :-)
The desire for unity. Not the easiest of journey. I donlt think it ever was. It seems to always be tied with destiny or karma to use a more familiar term and the doings of Shiva for some reason interfering and intervening are parts of what it does. As the writing unfolds it is clear that both individualities might not be compatible but that wonlt stop the feelings as they have nothing to do with rationality. Of course you want him to be the other half to complete you but inthe scheme of things this is one of those occasions where maths fails as this two half are not meant to be a whole.

A piece of your heart

Thankyou
