True Love Requires Understanding


It's sad to hear you say that you understand,
Only to have you turn away when I bare my soul.
It's sad that you can't feel my call for help,
To have you try to mend me as if I were another.

~True love requires understanding~

I won't feel guilty when you think I turn your love away,
For I know it is my own pain that I must tend to.
I won't apologize for not being able to explain,
For it is as much a mystery to me as it is for you.

They say that true love is about feeling for the other person and not just doing things for them based on what we think is best. Though understanding isn't always easy, for our person or for another, it's the ingredient that keeps things true. Keeping true to our person is more important than getting along with another person, no matter who they are.
