How Could You Love Me?

How could you love me?

I am flawed
beyond belief
I am small and broken;
wounded still
Touched with shadows
that i keep
and yet you love me

I live with fear
day to day
I am Pride itself
half-vain, half-mad
hidden from life
a sorry child
and yet you love me

Do you see?
maybe not
You are with
the other me
The 'me' i try
to be for you
For you to love me

I want to change
and always be
a happy maiden
of tomorrow
And someday you
will have the 'me'
that you deserve to love
