And The Only Reason

and the only reason
is that i care about you
and how you see me
and though you accept me as i am
through my faults and all,
i just want me
not to give you any reason
to think otherwise
or to see me
as a lost cause
or an object of pity.

and the only reason
is that you are dear to me
and i wouldn’t want to give you
any reason to think otherwise,
and that though words confuse you
and you hear all the noise,
and none of my voice,
i just want to be clear
that i’d like you to stay near.

and the only reason
is that i am rather fond of you
and that before i let go
and plunge into the clouds
where my dreams are woven
with yours, into yours,
only you can stop this
and i hope you don’t.

and the only reason
is that i want to see your face
and hear you laugh
and that it would tear me apart
if you think that i don’t feel so,
that i’m untrue,
that i lie,
that i am not who you thought i am
the me that makes you laugh
because it is i
and it is my joy
to do so.

and the only reason
is that i would not want
my voice to betray
my practiced, straight face,
because i do not want to muddle
whatever it is that is growing,
with the yearnings of my wicked mind,
and the fact that i cannot accept
that i am down this road again,
or probably not,
i would not know for sure.

and the only reason
is that you are special
and that when i care less
about the meter and rhymes,
all that counts
is that you are in mind
as i write, and as i think,
with tears welling up my eyes
for the fact that
you shall never know these things.
or perhaps you would,
if the universe permits it.
