Say You Love Me

“Opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… That is being naked.” ~ Rob Bell”

Flaws and All

I am not even halfway there, I am a work in progress
So please don’t tell me that I’m perfect when I’m happy, or when I undress
My looks don’t tell you who I am, my touch can’t transfer my past thoughts
If you could see through to my soul, you’d see how hard and long I’ve fought
To be real and warm and loyal, courageous enough to give all I have to give
You don’t know the scars and blood shed, the moments I felt too broken to live
You saw me so put together, with my words and smile and passion
But have you ever seen my darkest side, experienced my pain in action?
Did you see the longing in my eyes when I asked you to always be true?
Or have you not understood that I feel as if I have everything to lose?
That I feel like I may lose my mind if I believe another lie
And I may be broken beyond repair if I let the wrong one inside
I am so much good sliced with bad, stuck reminding myself it’s all worth it
I’m not even halfway there, so don’t tell me that I’m perfect

Flawless is absolute fiction.

About Me

– I am an ancient soul, in a modern body, with a futuristic state of mind.


“Learning from experiences is one of the ways in which we decide if experience may frighten us, weaken us or make us self-doubt, but it may also make us stronger. Sankofa teaches there are valuable lessons to be learned from the past.”
