Only then can I understand.

I want to get inside your head...
See the world through your eyes...
Touch the ground with your feet...
I want to hear what you hear...
Feel your heart beat.
Only then can I understand.
Understand me...
Understand you.
Forgive yourself for your sins...
You are only mortal filled with blood and bone.
Forgive yourself for being so fragile.
Forgiveness...
I forgive you.
Forgive me...
For not understanding
your world.

There will probably be a part 2 to this poem. I was inspired to write it after seeing the movie "Far Away, So Close." It's a German movie about an angel who tries a shot at being human, but he finds that humans can be terrible... yet being an angel he will never stop loving them.
Only then can I understand.

I want to get inside your head...
See the world through your eyes...
Touch the ground with your feet...
Only then can I understand.
Forgive yourself…
For your sins.
Forgive yourself…
For being fragile.
You are only mortal.
Forgive me…
For not answering your burning question.
Forgive me…
For I cannot answer.
Forgive…
I know so little…
I’m trying to understand.

So this is part two to "Understanding."
This poem was inspired by the poem "We are the messengers"

People don't comprehend that there are two ways of understanding; one is by having been in the situation, and the other is by listening in to the conditions.

that i understand that i love you

How does it come
that everyone understands poems of love
but nobody understands love itself?

How does it come
that i understand that i love you
but i dont understand yourself?

Understanding is not necessary for love
but love is necessary for understanding
Understand me.

Understand me.
Understand me.
Understand me.
Understand.
I’m standing in front of you.
Understand me.

I stood before you,
And you never understood.

ng of my current understanding, I don't understand much at all.

Based on my current understanding of my current understanding, I don't understand much at all.

people say that others have a hard time understanding

but for me

no one tries to understand

No one knows, they don't understand.

No one knows, they don't understand.
You do, I know you do.
You'll always understand,
But the will never understand.
Please you're the only one i can trust with this,
Understand where I'm coming from.
Understand that you're all I need,
All i want.
I love you.
FOREVER and ALWAYS.
You will always understand me, forever.

I feel as if I'm
made to understand but not
to be understood.
