I Didn’t Know
Edward Taylor III
I didn’t know how my ravenous lust would put you in a rush to lend your heart & loan your trust.
I didn’t know that the promise of that day would put you under a curse called ” The Christian Wife of Today”.
I didn’t know how I took you for granted forcing you to obey a husbands harsh commandments.
I didn’t know that the ring would cause a sting from the nine tailed whip my tongue could fling, putting you in slave bondage when your supposed to be my queen;
I didn’t know how far I fell when I failed to source you love; I didn’t know that I would be the cause for your eyelid waterfalls.
I didn’t know that I was the one who was supposed to fill your emotional tank, instead of attending to you I took my seat & commenced to drink, watching NFL highlights, while missing the key to my life…
So I wrote this to apologize, please let MY hand wipe away the tears from your eye’s,
Let me be your king who commands the Oceans to relinquish their pearls to you,
Let me be the man who satisfies your inner girl;
Please let me repay you for the time you’ve lost.
I repent to you & accuse myself, because, without you my good is lost & my favor meets death;
So I ask for your forgiveness with a sincere & sorrowful breath–
Please forgive me my wife…,
I Didn’t Know….
This poem was inspired by the powerful healing ministry my marriage is exposed to. I’m thankful that I’m blessed to say my wife & I are stronger than ever. I’m open with this poem because it’s my hope that it will spark a fire in those who read this, and in those who share with me the same desire for a successful marriage . – Edward T.
