unconditional

deserve i the love you impress
upon my heart? when i have shied
away, scurried further and hid
myself where you yourself cannot
find? how many times have you
knocked without answer?
discourteously maimed i am and
still you love without pause,
embrace as though i am gold in
your arms even if the jewels i
bear are the burdensome kind.
how can you stand and shelter
me from rain when i’ve broken
this umbrella between you and
i? when i have undressed you
of pride, smeared you with
utmost humility, how is it
that you vest yourself in
fool’s clothing and look
directly at me as though i
am everything? what do you
want me to see? is this
what unconditional means?
