North American Dreaming: Positive Impression

William Burkholder calls for belief to replace suspicion.

False impression,
Carved in your eyes,

Whittling into my heart,

You see things,
In a jealous light,

Where innocence,

How long,
How many times,

Must I say I love you,
Before you begin to believe,

Before you,
Release this,

Belief of deceit,

I can't be held,
For inflicted past pains,

I am not the owner of them,
They are not mine,

They are from a different man,
Another place and time,

I stand with open heart,
Bared to you,

And with each day of succession,
A positive impression,
I wish to bestow on you.
