Flawed Perfections.. (Poem)

I never considered myself to be very lucky, I always trip up and come up short. I lose my balance, knees buckle and give way. I’m afraid of the dark and always take the joke to far. I laugh when it’s freezing and cry when it’s sunny. I giggle at things that shouldn’t be funny. I stand in the rain because it feels better than a shower, I like sweet things even when they turn sour.

I throw my fist up when I win and curse when I lose. I hide my face in my hair, like random thoughts that go nowhere. I bite my lip when I’m shy, hide vulnerability and admiration behind strong eyes. Long division makes me tense, don’t ask me to solve for letter “x”.

Yet I’m standing here, naked and afraid, baring all to you, showing my flaws and scars I can’t make fade. And you look at me so matter of factly, and whisper “it’s ok”. “Your sincerity calms my hate, your voice soothes my pain, your care stops the panicked ache. Every flaw on which you fixate, are pieces of your beauty I love and appreciate. I’d never hesitate, to show you what you do to me whether I’m asleep or awake.”


Little bits about myself I wrote for someone 🍁🍂
