Sew -
I am a voracious reader and a complete geek, but hey I am pretty interesting.

Aces - While I understand you are still very attached to Mr. Jack, why the hell do you care what he thought of your thanks. I was thinking about this friend I had for years and years and years last night. I was thinking hey wouldn't it be great if we could still be friends, maybe I should call. Then I thought you know what the issues that they have with me are their issues, there is no reason to call and subject myself to the possibility of more abuse because I am a little nostalgic. What is done is done. So I guess what I am saying is that - you have a lot of memories, you will miss Mr. Jack, you may even want him back or want something back that you felt from him. Please remember that he has chosen to abuse you for over a year and while you may have played into it - there is still no excuse for that kind of behavior. It is your life and your choice.

Thank you.

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.

~It should. A lot of sociopathic personalities have menial jobs because their pathology won't tollerate anything more demanding.

I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

~Why should I 'ache' for anything? It's more of a challenge if I actually do things that attain whatever I desire. Dreaming only facilitates avoidance of unpleasant thoughts. Actually doing is far better. I live my dreams.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love for your dream for the adventure of being alive.

~How about try my best for love and not look at all foolish in that process. Will I do it to the best way it can be done? If so, that's good!!!

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon... I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.

~Why should I seek personal betterment by being or feeling betrayed?

I want to know if you can sit with pain mine or your own without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.

~Why should pain be tollerated at all? How about moving toward something aside from pain? Like love. Pain and fear don't cause what you are clearly trying to find. What you are trying to find is Love and the only way you can find it is to create it.

I want to know if you can be with joy mine or your own if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful be realistic remember the limitations of being human.

~This is good. The paragraph above. That's genius. Seriously. I like it!!!

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true.

~It should definately interest you if the story I am telling is true. If it's false than I am either lying or deluded.

I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself.

~I can be true to myself without disappointing anyone and if they are disappointed that's their fault.

If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul.

~If I've been true to myself than I should never need to explain myself to anyone nor find myself in any position to be accused.

If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.

~I wouldn't trust anyone who was faithless but then faith connotes many different meanings based upon the contexts to which they apply. The context in this poem is not at all well established here.

I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day.

~You mean: If I have Borderline Personality Disorder. No. I don't.

And if you can source your own life from its presence.

~No. I would never source. I would prefer to outsource to India than to source from flagging beauty.

I want to know if you can live with failure yours and mine and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes.”

No. I wouldn't. Failure is unacceptable. I would, however, say "hmmm." to the sliver of a wanning Moon. Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?

It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have.

~I live in Austin and have no money.

I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

~Jesus! Get help now! Get out of that relationship. If this is what you really think life is you seriously need help. If this guy is waking up bruised and weary he is a sick, sick puppy. Get out! Get out! Get out! Get out! Get out! SCARY!!!

It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here.

~Why not? My past is as much a part of who I am as my future will be.

I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.

~I think there is a far more strategically adventageous position than in the center of a fire.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied.

~Again, you should be interested in this stuff. It comprises who I am. It might have nothing to do with any of my future decisions but it's still something to be appreciated.

I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.

~God, Jesus, Buhda, Tao, et. al.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

~I'm alone right now. Perfectly happy. Welcome to the magic carpet ride, baby!

"If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy."

I keep thinking about this line over and over and over. Why is it so hard to accept when other people are faithless to us, if in fact they are really being true to themselves?

I mean - say you are with someone and you know they aren't the right person but you have been with them for years. You have to be faithless to them by walking away and going on with your own life because to stay with them and maintain their faith in the relationship is really an illusion. You are therefore trustworthy because you follow the inner guidance of your heart and abandon this person. But sometimes the guilt about being faithless makes us run right back even though we know it is not a good idea.
