You See Me

You see me. You see beneath my carefully crafted facade. You’re the only one who really sees me. Each day I perform a carefully constructed set of rituals designed to hide the real me from the outside world. When I’m finished, the product is passable, and I present a brave face to the world. But each day, when I come home to you, you patiently chip away at my shell until the real me stands before you. Soft and scared and vulnerable and absolutely terrified of being unlovable. And you take me and fold me into your arms and remind me that you love me more than I ever thought possible.

I don’t deserve you. I’m a study in imperfection. But somehow, you don’t seem to care. You see my blemishes and scars, both outside and in, and embrace them.

As hard as I’ve tried to push you away, you’re still here. You love me, and you fight for me, and you don’t put up with any of my bullshit. You see me. You love me for who I am.
