Simply put your heart (and hands) on the table and I’ll try to do the same without trembling: and for this short time, attempt not to betray you or myself by hiding behind unspoken thoughts.
Let us meet in openness, discussion and conversation: exploring this new space we have never shared; and I promise not to beg you for understanding.
Give me this time that I may hold up life and say “Look, this is what I discovered”: and ask only that you do not disregard without thought.
Simply put, I wish for time with you.
That we may re-acquaint: forgetting the harsh words, hatred and fear that usually accompany our interactions.
Let us not fight, but look close at each other: identifying the differences and similarities that bind us.
And after this, I would ask one thing more: that you would – if you could bear it, hold me a while.
SO TELL ME: What do you think of this piece?
- Did it engage you?
- Does the meaning come across? Are there any images or lines you don’t understand or find unclear?
- Are there obvious errors in spelling, punctuation or grammar?
- Do you have any suggestions for revision?
Please be brutally honest in your assessments – good, bad or indifferent.
I don’t scare easily; and I really do want to hear what YOU have to say about my work.
Many thanks in advance for your time and your criticism.
