i love a man who hurt and healed me
he said at one point 'i am a horrible person'
but i knew differently - he is a lovely guy
if only you knew him as i did
funny
so cute and handsome
smart
clever
witty
insightful
beautiful
strong
and gosh just so cool to be with when we weren't at odds
i loved him and i am so grateful to have met him
to have known him
to have loved him
despite the pain
and maybe
i don't know what his other side was like
i know at this point
i forgive him
i forgive you
you are special
treat others like that
too
just like you are-

have a good one

mark
