You and I


You and I

I always strive for perfection,
I seldom achieve it.

You say I am perfect for you,
Whether I am by society's standards or not,
You don't care.

I always think things are my fault,
I am always to blame.

You say blame is a stupid game,
That I am not responsible
You say I am special.

I think about too much,
I always talk myself out of things.

You say to have no worries,
that you will protect me.
You say to take the chance to fly.

I look deep into your eyes.
I see goodness and warmth, and a future.

You stare into my eyes,
you see to my soul,
Something bare and true and real.

I think you sometimes elaborate
when you tell me those special things.
I think I also know better than that.

You say you love me,
down to the bone
You say as long as you are living
that I will never be alone.

I am so lucky to have found you.
I never knew soulmates could be true.

You say you believe we are meant for each other.
Yet, unmistakably you are with another.

I will wait until it's my turn.
To have you to myself.
Then I can be the center of your universe
and be with no one else.
