The Man Who Loved Me Too Much

In a place I don’t recognize

The trees sway and I watch as they collide with each other in forces I can’t measure

I glance above and there isn’t even one star to light the night

The wind and the world consumed me, I am theirs


Thousand of anecdotes dying to come out, no one listens, no one listens

It was silent, not a din, not even a sound

The grass fondled me so tight I can feel their cold tears

Then I heard you, calling me, I don’t know you though but


Your face was beautiful, your hair was strands of compassion and grace

Your heart was pieces of goodness and affliction rolled into one

Your arms held me like I was the most exquisite thing you ever held

My heart was vacant and you filled it


We lay down together, You were closer than I know

You spoke and your presence dominated every bone in my body

Desire creeps in, I wanted to confess the million things I never had the courage to express

What I’ve been through; what the world did to me


I cried out those times I’ve been damaged and wrecked

that one time I was hurt by a boy, that one time I was betrayed by a friend,

And You told me about that time You carried a cross as tall as double a basketball ring up to a mountain, that time You were whipped 39 times, that one time You were crowned with thorns


I told you about those times life has assaulted me beyond my limits and caused me to give up

And you told me about those times you were mocked, condemned and bruised

I insisted and cry all the more about those moments I felt rejected, despised and unloved

You told me about that one time You were hung on a tree just ’cause you loved someone so much


I wanted to tell you more, the happiest, the saddest, the whos, whats, whens, hows
But You knew already

You knew my past, my fears, my aches, my stages

You knew me more than I knew myself


I love You, a whole lot more than what you think, you said

I was scared, not sure if I can let myself fall

You told me what you went through just to be here with me

How you went to the deepest corners of the world just to find me


I told you how it felt to be unworthy for other people, to always be insufficient

And you reminded me that I am enough, that you created me perfectly

How you composed every feature of who I am, how you carefully mold me

How you lost me to the world and did everything just to have me again


How you traded your life for mine

How you suffered so I can freely live

How you took my fall

How you loved and love me


Assuredly You said, nothing the world can do to take me away from You, ever again

And even if I flee away, once more, You will find me again

You will never leave me, nor forsake me

You will embrace me and keep me forever


Nothing can ever compare to what You did for me

No gold or silver can ever replace to Your faithfulness

No fortune can utterly correlate the way You brought us

No worldly affection can ever equate to the deepness of Your devotion


The night is getting lighter, the sun is almost up

I asked you, hoping it wouldn’t be the last

Why do you still stay and love me, despite all?

And you simply said, ‘Because, you are mine.’
