I Will Not Ask

I would never ask you to be more or less
Than what you are,
I simply want to know you.
I will not ask you to stay the same, I will not ask you to change
Or to never change.
Growth and transformation
Are part of the human experience.
Love allows growth
Even when it means
You must get to know another
All over again.
I will not ask you to be what I need
I will only ask me
To be what I need.
If that means being more, then I will grow
If that means crawling deep within
The darkest, most unknown depths of who I am
I will disappear, as it may seem
From your sight
To explore my own
Dark
And my own light.
I will not ask you to follow
And I will not ask you to understand
Or even approve
Of where I’ve gone
Or who I am.
It only matters if I do.

Love does not mean
You pretend to be
What you think I want
Or need
Love means being exquistely
You.
And I promise
To love
Exactly who
It is
You know you are ~
Even if to find out who that is
You must disappear
And dive inside
Your own dark night
I will be here
With my own light.
And if you’re meant to
One day
Find me again
I will not ask you
To be more
Or to be less
Than who you are
I only want to know you.
