The Fish and the Lion.

The Fish and the Lion.

A Poem by Lamm F. Reeves
"

so here's what I wanna say to someone... it's heartfelt, and sincere. Hopefully writing this will help me relax.

"

So I never thought that our paths would lead us here

But in a way it's all connected and makes ridiculous sense.

 

I love you.

I love you.

I love you.

 

I think I always have.

Even before I met you. 

Then why are we here?

Is it my stupidity? 

The Kings of Leon had it right when they sang about

dreaming of revelry.

I was always looking for something more grand, more fun, something that would complete me.

 

If I had just unveiled myself to you in the beginning, maybe it would have worked.

Oh, come on, we both know that's not true.

I wasn't who I am now, then.

It's taken this long to get to where I am.  You'd love me now.

You'd cherish who I am now. 

 

Right now, at this moment, I just want to show you how I've grown, who I've become.. what I've survived.

But I'm too late.

I've already given myself away.

And it's not a bad experience.

The keeper of my heart is you, but physically I'm with a man that deserves me.

 

He has a kind heart.  He has a young soul.  He will do anything, AND everything for me.  Whatever I want.

 

So why should I complain?  I'm so ungrateful.

 

I guess it just has a lot to do with the fact that you've given me something that no one else has ever really been able to give me.

You help me grow, and you help me learn, and .. I'd like to think that I kept you from drowning..

 

Although sometimes I did push your head under.  I felt really awful for it, really.  I regret it all.

 

That's where I always end up.

 

Our lives encircle over and over again, and they lead us back to the same place, to the same situation, to the same circumstances...

 

I guess it's just not meant to be.

 

But I promise, you will always be the true keeper of my heart.

you will always be in the back of my mind.

Your face, burned in me forever.

 

A fish and a lion.  Well that makes sense doesn't it? 

 

I love you.  I love you forever.

Heartfelt and sincere, indeed. A bit of irony and humor wrapped around a jagged piece of love. Good imagery and metaphors. Well done.
Suggestions: Use three periods to make an ellipse (when you used two it made it feel like you hit it twice on accident). Break up the longer lines to give it more of a "poem feel" or just call it lyrical prose.
