You see the real me

by Joshua Krook about a month ago in love poems

And I love you for it

Color me into the sky

The blues and pastels

You choose will

Come to define me

I've been many colors before

Many things in many eyes

But in your eyes

The hues melt away

You see the real me

I've never experienced that before

The unblotched, unblemished, me

That brushes your cheek in notes of red

The me that quivers after every kiss

Or turns blue after spending too long

Out in the sea

The unvarnished, unpolished, me

I've tried to hide in so many ways

You see the real me

I've never experienced that before

And I love you for it
