Forgive me for what I’m about to say
I want to be the first to tell you.
You are beautiful inside and out
Despite your self-doubt.
I want to get to know the real you,
Not the staged, caged version you show everyone else.
I feel for you, I weep with you, I sleep with you and I meant it too.
Hearing you breathe next to me is like a gift from the gods
I want you to be real with me and show that beautiful side so few get to see.
I’m glad you finally let me see.
I know I’m no one special, not the fantasy woman you seek.
I am a woman with flair, and a mind that tingles when you speak.
I can talk with you for hours, there is nothing more beautiful than your mind.
You’re one of a kind.
I know how your mind works
It needs constant reassurance that it’s alive
So you fuck to survive.
Shame you don’t fuck to thrive.
Maybe one day you will finally put your guard down and love life.
