To ask if you look at me
The way I look at you
Is simply to ask if your feelings
Are not your own
When you say that my eyes sparkle
I wonder, do eyes really sparkle?
Or are you trying to catch me?
To ask if you see me as if
It’s the first time
Is to ask if your feelings haven’t grown.
You tell me that I am perfect for you
And I wonder
Can someone truly be perfect?
You see, I have settled
Upon my imperfections
But your beauty needs no light
Because it simply shines alone.
