Love Me for My Imperfections

May 2, 2008

Love me for my imperfections

Love me for my fears

Love me for the selfishness

I display upon my peers

Love me for a little while

Until I break down

Forever is just not my style

Now your whispers to me are much too loud

We have tried now too many times

To rebuild something that's not for our kind

The end is near, time slowly fades

I wish this wasn't true, but people never change

Maybe for a little while I 'd seem so much more different

But maybe for a little while you just refused to listen

Maybe I won't end this with a harsh note

If you try to comprehend everything I wrote

I promise I will try to be sober

This following October.

Mary Dishigrikyan.

Wow. I LOVE this poem. Just enough rhyme without making it cheesy. Plus the last lines really HIT you. Good job!

Lots going for it...

(should be 'before' not 'upon')

Until I break down - is a bit short, needs something else to keep rhythm going.

sober/October is desperate rhyming....change these lines.

But - this is excellent, raw, yes, but there is much to build upon. I congratulate you on a very mature piece of writing. Well, done.

Keep writing
