Me for Me

He sees only me, wants only me;

But I can't believe him.

He holds me close,

And whispers love for eternity;

But I refuse to hear him.

I see his arms wide open;

His mind half empty.

His words float towards me,

And I quickly swat them away.

I don't see the beauty skin deep,

Or underneath;

I was never an ugly duckling,

Because now I am nothing close-

To a beautiful swan.

He says he sees me for who I am;

That he doesn not want to know me,

But he does;

I am the only thing to enter his mind.

All I see in the mirror is filth;

I should be happy he chose me.
