I Can Love You Perfectly




When you love me,

take me in –

Breathe the essence

of my skin

And despite my

blurred edges

And the scars

that I might hide,

Know that I am real,


And seeking

to be made whole.

Love my lines

Love my edges

Love the beauty

Of who I want to be

Not perfect, no –

But I know that I

can love you

  2. You just take me to another level of being high, your poetry is just intoxication.
