Love Me The Way I Am

Love Me The Way I Am

Love me for me,

Not for what you wish me to be,

Love me for who I am,

Tell me how you feel....

Be a man...

Why can't you see...

The goodness in me...

How can you be so blind?

To not see that this is me!

How can you try to change someone,

Who's destined to be?

How can you change the "I" in "me."

This is who I am...

Love me...

Or leave me...

That's just the way,

Things will be.

I don't try to change the "I" in "You."

So let me be me... Can you?

I see the beauty in those,

Who behold it....

I don't see it in you....

Someone stole it.

Too bad for you...

I'm stronger than you thought...

You can't manipulate this mind...

To conform it, to the way you want.

This is me....

This is who I am,

Love me, for me....

The way I was born to be...

And I'll love you for you....

Even if you don't want me too...

Quit trying to change something that you have no control of....

And I'll be the one that you will fall inlove,

Closing chapter of insecurities....

Opening a new one with possibilities....

All I ask from you...

Is to love me for me....

And in return...

Together we will be.

Just love me for me....

Love me for the way that I am....

Not so much a cry from the heart, but a simply-put request to the guy to see the woman as she wants to be seen... as herself. Not some aspiration to be toyed with. Or changed in some way. Keeping on the right side of our man is a balancing act. I think the reasonable tone and honest way of putting things really works with this hub. A gentle but polite appeal to someone's good nature.

The line "Tell me how you feel" proves it is a genuine open invitation to see sense...getting the person's input shows the poet cares about her subject. :)

Aaah, who said the art of good writing is dead? Not in this case here.

.....just pure expressive lovely words here - no poetic BS - just the real deal and very direct with simple words but at the same it's an artful craft (you do) that so many writers/poets tend to overlook and in your capable hands it's an awesome thing to read. sending you warm wishes from lake erie time ontario canada 4:29pm

"Everyone wants to be needed, and needs to be wanted." (Demas w. Jasper) This poem expresses that well.

You are very welcome. Poetry is hard to write unless you have passion and this intense desire. You have those qualities ( which I lack ) Just read my one poem. LOL. I enjoy the way you draw the reader in.

There is another great poet that I follow too. I think you would love to read them. There name is MFB111. You know I cannot tell if those should be one's or L's...

Your poem definitely struck a cord with me... Everybody must be accepted for who they are... Change is good but not when its about you changing urself...
