All of the time

All of the time

A Poem by Richard Layne
"

Time, time, time

"
some of the time
i don't understand you

most of the time
i think i'm right and how could you be so stupid
so selfish not to worship me
and hang on everything i say
and do as i do

all of the time
i love you


some of the time
i have wicked thoughts about you and what you did

most of the time
i blame myself
my pettiness and insecurity
Stupidity


all of the time
i love you

some of the time
i wonder if i never picked up your phone

most of the time
i'm glad we got things out in the open
even though the pain and shame was there
we needed to exorcise some demons
Know each other and I needed to know
My son

all of the time
i love you


some of the time
i wonder if we just repeat history
Same old arguments
Hurt feelings
Suspicions

most of the time
i know we can be better
i can try to be better
i can try not to hate you
despise you
spit on you
feel sorry for you
treat you
throw money at you
kiss you on the mouth
smack your a*s hard to leave a mark
f**k you like a w***e

all of the time
i love you

Beautifully beautiful.................

Your words are true definition of love..............

to peel back the layers of emotions, scars, actions, reactions, isn't always pretty..but it is powerful.. love isn't easy and it sure doesn't make sense. feels authentic and honest.

Thank you for reading back so quick and for your comments.
No bowl of cherries, here; no bowl of cherries for any of us, really.
Admire this painfully truthful poetic narrative, Richard--as well as the talent, craft and excruciating soul-searching it took to create.
You're an excellent poet.

So filled with emotional resonance... a history of loving.. of longing.. of wishing... of the wonderings of time.. what was... what is left... and yes.. that love.. it doesn't go away.. it only takes a new shape... Powerful...

Real life feel to the poem. I like the way you expressed regular life and simple acts. I did like the way you repeated the words.
"all of the time
i love you "
Gave realness and strength to the words. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Painfully honest, vulnerable, and complex. Beautiful
