Now I For Those Men

To those men who sought me out
for reasons I could not fathom
who realized me for who I am
and held on just loose enough
that I could call them friends

To the men who live a life's love
in but the span of a single breath
who held in passion too tight
and took each of my breaths away
who will always be more than friends
but never again be lovers

To each and every heartbreak
I put my own self through
for delusion of goodness
born of misplaced loyalty

To the man I will always need
though I may not ever meet him
but certainly hope I have

To each of these I gave myself
in little ways each pruned me
I am the woman I grew to be
for those who loved and hurt me.
