There’s no perfect haven, without you.


I’ve been fooled by my ego

I’ve been fooled; adorned in



No one ever told me that,

there is beauty in the imperfect 

I only saw your inadequacies 


No one ever told me that,

 everything evolves 

becoming something 



My tongue became the rope that

Tied you down in insecurities 


I killed your self esteem;

Comparing you to the 

illusional neon signs on

the highway.


I’m surrounded by obscure 


floored by an 



Oh, I dispelled the light

Of your presence

Embracing illusions


There is no perfect haven

without the light of your being



I was a fool

And I never knew that

Love accepts, cherish,

And appreciate things

Just the way they are.


Ah, I was a hypocritical 

Pious fool


I pray that this darkness 

doesn’t choke me to death 

Cause, I’m slipping slowly

to an unknown universe,

Without you.

    This is great, I like the second stanza- “beauty in the imperfect” that is so true- loving people God made in His image and embracing their strengths without denying their weaknesses. Love looks past the difficult in people to embrace the neat qualities they have! Excellent! God does that for us by sending Christ “in while we were still sinners Christ died for us” as ROMANS says- God saw the value in us so we must look at the value in others! Good poetry man


    1. Thanks so much for your comment. I trust you’re doing awesome in Christ
