a Poem by Raquel Swann


You accept me

No matter what.

You embrace me

When I’m down

You always smile

When I can’t.

You see me

Underneath my skin

You want me

When others don’t.

You need me

To complete you

My heart is

Yours to take

You don’t exist

You’re a prototype

Maybe one time

We will meet

And you’ll be

Everything I thought

You would be.
