All The Four Got Ten Words

It's seems like we're always together and never apart
you want me to tell you how I feel but it is you
it has always been you who told me my feelings
and I could never be honest with myself
as honest as you were when we stood face to face
I want to tell you my brows raise and squint
I look again seeking to see the king in you
instead seeing the jester you reflect of me
and still I spend hours preparing to fail
only the words fall unheard for fingers flail
the sounds are click and clack, and we tie light
where is my honesty, where is the trust in me
I want to tell you you are lovely and I care
I want to hold you close and breath your air
I want and yet we are one, and you ask my name
and I fall apart trying to remember who I am
and convince you that we are the same
when you knew the truth before me
and decided that I ought learn again
I want to hold you close and let the flames burn
I want to turn back the hands which pull me away
but when we're close I turn and run away
because you are more honest than I
you speak my worth and show me I fear
and this is the reason I run from you dear
you do not no me, though I no you
and I question why and where this became my rue
the rod I took led me far from arms
and armed I became to ward your charms
and the more I fended and fenced my D
the further away you went from me
only now I come to clearly sow
the things I reaped and cold and snow
and it melts in springs warm eastern breeze
yet still my heart seeks answers these
how can we be in love and yet turn back
how can the love we made have grown slack
how could you turn to me and ask
are we stuck carrying each others slack
we raised this tent to ward the rains
the searing pains the drags and drains
and all I ask is that we learn
to speak the truth in each others terms
to let o be a and a be o and glow
so that we might melt the snow
the frost the sweet sparkling sleet
though somehow some of this creates ow
and ow in you is ow in me
we share this eternal emotional we
there is no me without you
and no you without me
and yet we stand face to face
body to body, seeking embrace
seeking to become the ember ace
the king of hearts the queen
and our space and time between
we split ourselves asunder
for the joy of coming together
yet we forgot to forget we were once one
and every time we meet we fish to rise
the sense of catching some great prize
each other, each o there, each whole
apart a party of one split days

yes, the yah way, the road with no no's
the true path we deserve to walk along
where we already know each other
where we never forget to forgive
where faith and forge serve metal
and the courage to just make love

I want to say I love you
I want every word that is spoken
to say I love you
and I don't want to ASK if you love me
I want to be certain you do
everyone of you
I want to love and be loved
I just don't know why
I want to know why I need love
and I want to be happy with the answer
so that only poetry will come forth
and music be my language
and we can sing together and fly
and you'll be sure I'm not some
unintriduced and obscure guy

who am I
I don't know
will you love me anyway?
I hope so.
