Contrasting Perfection

May 29, 2008
By Chelsea Richardson, Havelock, NC

Make me laugh and break me apart
Tell me I'm beautiful, and tell me I'm not
Tell me you love me, but without all your heart
I still want to grow on you, let's stay apart
For only a short time, yeah maybe for a little while
Then pull me in close, and kiss me through your smile
Wrap your arms around me from behind,
I'm still growing on you, and I've now come to find
My flaws to you have began to disappear
Not all gone, but close and near
I'm gaining your heart
One piece at a time
I'm not like every other girl
And finally, for a boy, yes you
This is fine
