"I'm well acquainted with villains that live in my head."

I’m not a person

To express feelings

Of admiration,

Of love.

But one day,

I hope

To find the one

Who melts the ice

That presses against my soul.


He’ll be the caring sort,

Who balances out

My sharp tongue

And bitter wit.

He’ll understand me,

Know that I don’t mean

To hurt people,

That I can’t always

Control myself.

He won’t mind

That children

May not be a possibility,

And he will still

Love me.


He will be imperfect,

But will seem perfect

To me.


We’ll both be flawed,

And will love

One another,

Despite the defects

That plague us.


I won’t say

I’m not asking for much,

Because the truth

Is that

I am.


But I’m sure

That the Universe

Owes me,

Especially after every blow

I’ve been dealt,

And even if

I don’t get the one

I want,

At least,

Dear Universe,

Give me what I
