Love Poem for Troubled Relationship

Open Heart and Ears

It's easier to keep silent
safely launching passive aggression
dodging an unsightly shouting match
believing her sullenness
clearly signaled her grievance
without an ugly confrontation
he should know it's not alright
he had to remedy the wrong

It's easier to complain to others
when facing a lover's squabble
rather than nursing the wounds
rather than nourishing love
it's entirely his fault afterall
he fell short of being perfect
why should she compromise at all

It's harder to go within
to carry out self-reflection
to face up to her insecurities
to articulate her fears out loud
it's harder to open up her heart
to let him see the hurt and pain
it's hard to grow up at times
to deal with conflict lovingly

Afraid of owning up to
her sore spot and not
willing to be vulnerable
not ready to own up to
her part in the conflict
wanting to believe she
did no harm to their love
the fault didn't lie with her

Scared of his possible reaction
terrified he would take love away
she tried to escape and flee
taking refuge in cold fortress
driving him madder and angrier
the more she retreated backwards
the more he advanced forwards
falling into the abyss of misery

Arriving at a deadlock
both refusing to give in
yet refusing to give up
no flow of soothing words
to heal two wounded hearts
all dark and gloomy clouds
hurting each other even more
driving the wedge wider

The standstill drove her crazy
came the time she had to decide
what truly meant more to her
was it the heart or the pride
to open up and risk further wounds
or to bottle up and wait it out
for the storm to go away quietly
closing another door upon love

She hoped to open doors to love
not to cause another to be closed
hot tears stained her cheeks
somehow the tears comforted her
slowly peering within she found
a core of strength arising
she courageously decided then
to open up her heart and ears

Opening up her heart to him
she showed him her pain her fears
finally meaning what she said
ending her confession with
the deep love she felt for him
her open heart thawed his hardness
taking a smiliar move to hers
he spoke from deep within him
and she was all ears
open hearts and open ears

Taking in his hurt his pain
and the love he had for her
eradicating the blaming game
both gained newfound wisdom
forming a hope-filled bridge
leading them into each other's
heart and new understanding
their passion returned once again

Go into love with open heart and ears
holding the sincere wish to
bring out the best in one another
not seeking to diminish or trample
upon the sacred love that comes
mend any strain readily and quickly
mend it good and with forgiveness
let each other listen and be listened
let love flow through barriers
let your heart and ears be opened
