Perfect For Me
I soak your gaze up like water,
to a rare flower, my nourishment.
The sun sparkles in you eyes,
casts a light to my eternal darkness.
Your words are like seeds,
which I tend close to my heart,
growing to discover their meaning.
And I dote upon your voice.
Your arms are like trees
shielding me from my cruel world,
& from myself; for I am cruel.
Your smile is my biggest accomplishment,
your lips soft, & making me greedy.
They tilt up when you kiss me softly.
I do not want to stop making you happy.
Your mind is so accepting,
Your demeanor boasts hard won patience.
Trust me, you'll need it!
And for all of that you are not perfect,
But it all pales when I remember that
All you have to do is be perfect for me.
