Are You Mocking Me?

Are You Mocking Me?

i never knew
what sarcasm is
or how it affects
feelings
well – beings
relationships
for i only knew
politeness
kindness
until you.

i never knew
what arrogance is
or how to be one
to speak
to act
arrogantly
for i only knew
to be subdued
submissive
humble
until you.

until you
started
mocking me
with my innocence
with my candor
with my love.

it could be
both a blessing
and a curse
for i would
never knew
how to never
give up
without a
good damn
fight.

i would never know
how beautiful love is
until you arrogantly
and sarcastically
mocked me
’twas painful
’twas heartbreaking.

but that’s love
until you
and it’s okay
for i knew
exactly how to
perfectly love
an imperfect
human being
just love
flawed
but true.

and
i love you
more than enough
more than you know
however your
final encore
would be.

    I love this, Mich! Many times things said in jest are not meant to be hurtful but are taken that way. A solid relationship helps with understanding what your partner is saying.

  4. A powerful, important poem from the Encore prompt! Great job, SweetMich!
    We learn from each relationship/from each of the people we choose to love. (Spouses, family, friends, etc.) Even the negatives and pain we encounter teach us about ourselves and prepare us for the future. πŸ™‚
