Just the way you are…

like a snake shedding its skin

shed yours

i know it’s fake

be bereaved of pretentions

crawl under my skin

creep into my veins

breathe to the tune

of my heart’s beat

for only then you’ll know

i need you body and soul

minus

your masks

minus

your deceits

minus

your longing

to come clean

like a prisoner

on death penalty

wailing

wanting

 one miracle

to live as long as the sun

walk in my shadows

only then you’ll see

i want your love

just the way you are

i want to love you

just the way you are

  1. What a really interesting way to look at the whole idea of unrequited love. There’s so much of the narrator exploring themselves through the love they feel for the other person… beautiful words as well
