What Truly Impresses Me (poem)

What Truly Impresses Me (poem)

What truly impresses me
Is when you stop trying to impress me

 

Get rid of those fancy words
Or how you try to prove your wisdom

 

Let go of the stories of strength
If you cannot reveal your softness

 

Without your story
I cannot meet you half way

 

So give me a taste of your realness
Your transparency
In all it’s glory

 

Show me your sweat and shivers
Reveal your pride and courage
Let me see your most hidden scars
And your big wide smile that tops it all

 

Your rawness is what impresses me
And how you allow me in
Little by little
Truly

 

Your presence is what opens my heart
And how you listen with curiosity
To know me
To get a glimpse of my uniqueness
With fascination for more

 

So.. Meet me with your silence
Your deep gaze
And gentle touch

 

Meet me with interest
Depth
And the way you dare to share

 

It requires no effort
No thought
No expected outcome

 

That’s how you truly impresses me

 

With your details
When the mystery of you becomes less mysterious
When your smile becomes the gateway to truth
And your eyes guard me with realness
