Know me now
For who I am
Not what I was,

Know me now
For who I try to be
Not what I could be,

Know me now
As the one who gives
Not as the one who takes

Know me now
As the one who loves you
Not as the one who forgot to love

Know me now
As the one who became strong
Not as the one who was weak

Know me now
As the one who will remain
Not as the one who ran away

I wrote this after reading Anita's poem "know me now". Thank you anita.
Tryst, I really like this poem. it sounds like a person growing into maturity and recognising themselves as well as appreciating their lover for the person he/she is.[L]
The gradual change of line-lengths has an interesting (cumulative) effect.

Thank you for taking the time to read. As for the line lengths it just happened that way but I did notice it when it was done. Thank you again MrP.
Now you know me and I know you.Emotion: big smile

It is nice to know that the title of my poem inspired you to write a poem. And thanks for acknowledging...

I liked your poem... Beautiful words and subtle message.
Yeah, that's really striking. I like the wording and the rythm of it. It could make a good song by the way!

Good luck TrystEmotion: wink

Your poems did inspire a lot of people. Even I sometimes couldn't resist the temptation to try to write some poems in your style. Know me now, for I haven't registered yet in 2005. Oops.
