24 (who?)
If you could see me now
You would know I'm not the same
But you won't give me a chance

I know I'm not perfect
You don't have to say it twice
But my imperfection is me

I can't be your knight
That armor is too heavy for me
You will find someone else, stronger and free

That person will be free
Until you corrupt him
With this idea of perfection

To be imperfect
Is the be perfect
That's how you're yourself

And didn't you always say
Be yourself?
Yeah, I couldn't be something my ex wanted, and if I changed into that person I wouldn't be me, and she always said that she loved me for who I'm but in reality she had this idea of a perfect boyfriend and that was one of the reason me and her fell apart........

BUt something burns down for another thing to bloom :) That's how life is and you do not learn that fire is hot, untill you burn yourself on it ^^

From a girls perspective: often our view of perfect is just what our bf is. He (you) may think that we have this unrealistic view of you but in reality it's everything that you are that we find to be the "perfection" even if it's not actually perfect. A totally perfect guy would be.... well boring and dull. Just a two-cents from a girl who's been given the cold shoulder for being misunderstood and thought to have "unrealistic expectations" even though I knew the guy wasn't perfect. :/ So yeah...

beautiful piece though. :)

Then we have different experiences cause if you knew my ex you would know that she didn't think I was even close XD She tried to change me everyday we were together, kinda funny when I think about it. I know not everyone's like that but I wrote from experience and well, that was my experience XD

I really enjoyed this poem, I can certainly say I'm in that same boat right now
