It’s hidden well, but I search deep within the crevices of your mind.
I interpret your words and actions to depict intention and longing, want and need.
They’re masked behind masculinity; hidden within the social construct that disallows you to be free....to feel.
That which praises to the appeal of lust; turns love to dust.
Strong enough to break a woman’s heart, but no strength to trust us.

Perhaps it’s deeper. It’s possible the lack of trust comes from within yourself; a complete inability to believe what you’re feeling, to put words to the feelings. 
That tug beneath your chest, that pain with each breath.
Lost in the conflict; masculinity, insecurity, longing, desire, want, and need.
Masculinity trumps.
It’s toxicity constructed, a toxicity you’ve instructed to depict the derelict outcome of your emotional wellbeing; a lifelong inability to be vulnerable.
To open up about your feelings of love. And I’m sorry... that I couldn’t wait for you any longer because each day my love grew stronger, your barriers did the same.

Thank you for taking time to read. I'll work on the wordy-ness.

There are some nuggets in this piece. The trouble is they are difficult to mine out of the whole poem. It is difficult to read and for my money needs to be in shorter lines.

etc etc! Just my view, the words are good though
