Poem: No Longer Perfect

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"No Longer Perfect"

He professes his love,
promises to stand by her side
battling this storm together,
taking her hand in his,
speaking tender words to her heart.

He cries tears for himself,
feeling trapped,
his words untrustworthy,
waiting for her recovery
so he can safely depart.

No longer perfect
with her unsteady gait,
he cannot wait to trade her in
before she totally breaks.

"She Wasn't Good Enough For Him" by Reba McEntire
