My Heart on My Sleeve

door killea

opened up to you
like to no-one before
you tell your wondrous stories
make me laugh and more
I've never felt so insecure
standing at the edge of a cliff,
I jump, you said you'd break my fall
then a message full of confusion
or no word at all
and I'm in the air hanging
on to an illusion
you disappear, you've done it before
I never learn my lessons well
this time I hear loud and clear
the ringing of the bell
and I dare you not to feel
in this transitory relationship
the tug at the end of the reel
and as I wear my heart on my sleeve
I want to trust
I want to believe
you say what you mean and
you mean what you say
but history keeps repeating itself
you pull the rug from under my feet
and I wait for you to tell me it's all okay



"It is sure as you are Roderigo,
Were I the Moor, I would not be Iago.
In following him, I follow but myself;
Heaven is my judge, not I for love and duty,
But seeming so, for my peculiar end;
For when my outward action doth demonstrate
The native at and figure of my heart
In complement extern, 'tis not long after
But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve.
For daws to peck at, I am not what I am."
Othello, Act 1, scene 1 56-65 Shakespeare

    mayby if you're not sure you have to learn to trust yourself and then you can learn to trust somebody else.
    Hopelijk een foutloos antwoord maar ik vrees er een beetje voor,
    maar je weet wat ik bedoel he, prachtig Engels weer,
    groetjes,
    Marc.
    killea: Thank you for the great FB, Marc
