You Are Not Perfect

You’ve done it again –

Shattered your words

On the face of my expectations;

How do I sail without your wind?

I look into those brown eyes…

Beyond the glamor of the lashes,

The glaze –

But it’s me, not you calling…


More and more


More and more

I see the me I want in you –

The shape and form you have to take

The dream – I want you to live

Never letting you be…

Yet I find nothing I look for.

You’ve done it again…

Knotting your life with mine

So we can be free

Being an irreplicable soul you are

And yet my mate

Daring me to see you as I see my self –

An imperfect being in an imperfect world

Awaiting completion…
