I Wonder What It Would Mean To You

I wonder what it would mean to you

If I promised you I’d never lie.

Never pretending things would be ever peachy

But letting you know I’ll always be on stand-by.

Trust has to be the swaddling cloth

In which our love, most precious, is wrapped.

Instead of letting suspicion, insecurity and doubt

Be the premise on which your actions are mapped.


I wonder what it would mean to you

If you knew your best interest fills my heart.

Would the assurance of my love be convincing-

Enough to let me walk you through every path?

Through the pain that cuts and the tears that burn

Could you trust me in spite of it all?

Or would the faintest sign of turbulence

Cause you to just pack up and run?


I wonder what it would mean to you

If you knew I prefer your body to concrete.

That this container of flesh in which you function

Is really my most choice place of dwelling.

I don’t mind meeting and talking with you

Within walls erected by some man.

But if you let me in to clean you up

You’d see you’re the most fitting dwelling for ‘I am’.


I wonder what it would mean to you

If you knew I’d never cheat.

Because with everything at my disposal

You’re yet still my masterpiece.

I couldn’t love you any less even if I wanted to

But my love for you is perfect, no matter what you do.

I’ll always be faithful, can you say the same?

You could get distracted and maybe forget my name.

Faithful, loyal and true; this is who I’ll always be,

And I love you too much to see you hurt so just stick with me.


I wonder what it would mean to you

If you knew I gave it all.

No one else would come to your rescue

But I jumped at the call.

I’ve never felt such torture, pain and misery

I went through it humbly, just so you could find joy in me.

So their looks could warm and their touches could melt;

But what happens when after your soiling, a cruel hand’s all you’re dealt?

I love you so very much and want you to be mine, forever!

So when will you stop treating me as though I don’t matter?

      Initially i was going to do a piece about a dude expressing his love for his bae but then i just thought; “Face it Kwiksie, whose ‘loving’ have you experienced that supercedes Christs’?” #shrug, so the poem changed.
