she wasn't perfect



Her heart tender, her mind creative

Strong-minded, and weak at the same time


Feeling everything is a curse they say

She was sensitive to words, 

All words stuck into her mind

All the good words built her

All the bad words stabbed her deep 


She wasn't perfect, neither was he

But she could make you laugh 

But she could make you smile

But she could see deep inside you


His tongue was a snake's

Spitting  poisonous words

His words broke her

His words poisoned her

His words stabbed her


All she needed was love

All he did was break her


He chose to see her imperfections

He chose not to see her bright side

She wasn't perfect

But neither was he
