Love me the way I adore you.
Obsess over my perfections
And make love to my imperfections.
Treat me like a fragile piece of china,
But don’t throw me away yet.
I’ve given you too much of myself
To stand there in silence
As I watch you turn your back on me
And walk into the distance
As the most envelopes you.
And watch me blossom just as you did
When I taught you how to love yourself.
Teach me how to embrace every aspect
Of my life, my body, my soul, my abilities.
Don’t throw away the book
Before you’ve reached the end.
The happy ending.
