know me

I want be known
 not by a thousand but by one
I to be bone deep recognised in spirit and flesh
I want  you to care enough about the details
   To memorise these shades of shadows
swirling in my soul

          and not run
 petrified of my darkness and repulsed by my inadequacy
I want you to love my imperfection
 
I want to be desired
   as in oxygen has been replaced
   with burning for my taste

I dream of this love
   colored and contoured by novels
but I wonder

if it is not a fantasy lying
is it real?
For now it is the sniper 
   taking down the flesh before me
    with its desperate demands

    what we truly want in a mate, we may never find....because we all want perfection, but remember Adam's decline....when he ate with Eve, immortality was lost....now we have to be Righteous to find it, will you pay that cost....I likes....;)
