I will close my eyes
try to overlook my flaws.
Forget for now,
the marks on my body
made by the passage of time.
I will attempt to see myself
with new eyes,
as you profess you see me.
I will breathe deep,
let go of the expectation
I must be perfect in every way.
I will allow myself to
settle within the soft caress
of your love…

If only I could
give myself permission.
