If you have read 3 or 4 of my poems before you will know that I often reference particular muses or inspirations. One of the common sources of inspiration is nature, another is love (in its many iterations). Today’s offering was inspired by my Number 1 muse, my wife. So yes, this is an apologetic love poem.
Understanding I want to know your stories to be inside your head know your world hear your voice I want to walk through your memories see the colours feel the textures the moments when it all came true when you maxed out your bid, knowing you'd lose I want to want to walk in your shoes take the journey towards the light when you fell from great height as the parapet crumbled I want to know your stories to remember how defeat became victory to understand how you found me.
