Perfect

I’m looking in the mirror, trying to figure out
If the way I look now works or not.
I feel uneasy, it doesn’t look like me
I wipe off the lipstick and let my hair flow free.

I told you I wear jeans and that sometimes I slouch
But now I look like someone you’d fuck on the couch.
You’ve never seen me, I’ve never seen you
This is a big deal for us two.

I walk on the street; it’s a beautiful day
The wind is blowing slowly, making the trees sway.
It’s a good sign, I say in a whisper
I smile and make my pace brisker.

I finally arrive and before going in
I take a deep breath and hold it within.
A comic book store was a great touch
We meet up here and then get lunch.

I had no idea who I was looking for
Luckily you bumped into me and I fell on the floor.
Now I laugh, but then I was angry
You helped me up but I thought you were an idiot, frankly.

Those feelings changed quickly, I came to love you
I can’t believe it all happened in the same day, too.
We talked; we laughed and had a great evening
You said you loved me too, before leaving.

Time goes by; a few years have passed
We decided this was going to last.
It was perfect, just the two of us
But sadly, that’s not how it was.

You got on one knee and opened the box
A ring so beautiful, you had me lost.
You slide it on my finger, it’s a perfect fit
It’s a good sign, I think of it.

We were to say our vows, a day from now
But life decided to put on a show.
It is a drama; sad and pathetic
But luckily it can also be poetic.

Instead of reading my vows and saying I do
I sit here, crying, writing about you.
It would have been perfect, no need to say
I really wish you weren't taken away.
