Dear ______ / Honestly

Dear ______ / Honestly

A Poem by perfectlymetiKulous

Dear _________,

 
Hi sweetie.
Let me keep it real.  Ugh.  Wait.  Did I really just write that? 
I hate that f*****g phrase.  It's so lame.  It means nothing, I mean, seriously
how many people are TRULY doing that?
Not a lot.  Definitely not.
 
But anyway, all that is so beside the point.
I won’t even keep it real. I’ll keep it honest. 
For you, I'll definitely keep it 100% honest.
So:
 
Listen,
Honestly,
I told you about how I am when we met.
I told you that I wasn’t the
Being-in-a-relationship-damn-near-married type.
I told you I wasn’t the
Oooh-catch-me-I’m-fainting-just-because-she-asked type.
I coulda sworn I said I wasn’t the
Wine-me-dine-me-to-make-me-wanna-wife-you type.
I thought I made it perfectly clear
That I don’t need you to define me.
It isn’t she that defines me, either.
At the end of every day, honestly,
it’s just me. 
 
Listen,
Honestly,
I told you about my heart when we met.
I told you that I wasn’t
Ready to love anyone else because
I still loved her.
I told you that I wasn’t
Ever going to want to deal with a bunch
Of drama.
I coulda sworn I told you that I really do like you
And I do.
I thought I made it perfectly clear
That we should let things happen naturally. 
Easy does it.
What’s the big rush anyway?
I’m just saving you (or us) from
Disappointment. 
 
Because listen,
Honestly,
To love someone else is to
Give yourself to them
To allow them to see you,
The real you, for all your
Flawed exquisiteness
Genius ignorance
Accurate wrongs.
Once you allow them in,
You give them your whole heart,
You’re at the top of the world,
Looking down at everyone who can’t possibly
Understand
Fathom
Embrace
A love like this one.
It is immaculate.
Once you’re at the top,
You can only come down.
So, honestly, love opens up a
Realm of possibilities.
 
And on the real (scratch that) - HONEST side of everything:
Possibilities afford disappointment
(dust yourself off, and try again)
 and
When I’m ready to be disappointed again,
Honestly,
You’ll be the first to know.
 
 
I hope you understand. 
 
Sincerely,
d.

Really, D? You had doubts about this one? Surely, you jest. I'm stuck on stupid. I really don't even know where to begin with this because you had me from the start, but then? Here you go. Implementing something as ON POINT as this! I can't with you.

And on the real (scratch that) - HONEST side of everything:
Possibilities afford disappointment
(dust yourself off, and try again)
and
When I'm ready to be disappointed again,
Honestly,
You'll be the first to know.

Perfection. No other words necessary.

The last line is definitely the best part. Very creative.

Wow, this is artistic and well written as well as expressed in a way that connects the reader.
I felt the foward and raw nature to be subtle and convicting, excellent job
