Never Quite enough
Written by: Abeeda
With my gentle touch of trust,
You lowered the mask that you had adorned for so long.
Despite the scars, imperfections, and flaws;
I only saw your beauty.
As time passed,
I began to dismantle my fortress;
My mask remained –
But as our trust blossomed,
I slowly began to remove it.
You looked on,
And I knew from your eyes,
My scars, my imperfections, and my flaws –
They were too much for you to bear.
