What Is Love If We Don’t Look Past Each Other’s Weaknesses?

Light and day got me striving,
Problem solving not my strength,
Why do you look past my weaknesses?

When we talk,
I get high,
Your facial features,
Got me in a constant state of modesty,
I’m stuck in travesty,
State of affairs,
Your words,
Have me feeling consequences consequently,

Understand,
I am not a man of integrity,
I’m a broken soldier without a country,
You will have to hold me nightly,
I suffer from nightmares religiously,
Post traumatic stress got me suffering,
Bi-polar got me out-of-order,

You will have to hold me nightly,
I never dreamed,
Nor imagined,
I would meet a girl like you,

You treat me like I am a recently crowned King,
Your eyes wash my soul every morning,
Never imagined,
Someone’s hands would destroy my fears,
Your kisses,
Opened up my chest,

As your lips trail border-check points,
Your finger-nails,
Clean trauma from my rib-cage,
I don’t understand,
What did I do to deserve you?

I don’t have wealth,
Nor hold intellect,
Understand,
I am nothing,
I am a homeless man pushing one cart,
What did I do to deserve you?

I’m afraid,
If I hold you,
I will squeeze too hard,
Without warning,
You held my hands,
Your eye-lashes cleaned my conscience,

When you choose to walk next to me,
I went from being a wreck,
To being ticketed for indecent exposure,
I was arrested for driving under the influence,

No one understands,
It came from when our lips locked,
Our eyes caught one another’s faults,
Shoulders carried one another’s pain,
What did I do to deserve you?

Light and day got me striving,
Problem solving not my strength,
Why do you look past my weaknesses?
