Overdue decisions often rise up
 into the throat
 creating a calm heart but seem to shout inside
 like the first aha! moment.
I am...
Determined to avoid foolish arguements!
Tell me the sky is red if that is your reality,
I will honor you.
Truth is easily expressed, eagerly understood.
While embellishment and untruth are loosely woven fabrics;
White cheesecloth to collect the truth
and strain out the lies.
Time always tells the truth.
So why not let time be our judge?
I am...
Determined to listen, forgive, and forget.
I have nothing to prove so take me at my word.
Recrimination is insanity
that builds a bitter and unapproachable wall
between two hearts.
A defensive move might be valued in sports,
keeping your opponent from scoring
 love is not a game...
 there are no winners in foolish arguements.
Author's Notes:
this poem was inspired by Tomahawk's recent post, The Black Flame.  A good poem makes one think and reason...and usually inspires other writings.   What is your take on "The Black Flame"?  Be sure to check it out for yourself and find your own inspiration...

A fine and meaningful poem.  A remarkable perspective on insanity.  A human thing.  Something real.  --David

I think you have beautifully delivered one of the best take on 'insanity'. The beginning and the end tie amazingly. " a calm heart that seems to shout inside, can only believe that love is not a game, hence will bear most of the burden.... loved it, ~Dean
