You Are My ‘perfect Mismatch' - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Yesterday I was arriving in your heart to stay
But today I am driving far, far away
Once again I can breathe clean fresh air
At ease, I dance, let loose my hair without despair
I thought I show you love with awesome care
But to myself I was never playing fair and square
I've spent my life looking for the perfect match
But it's been seven years of patch, patch and patch

Now! I don't care if I have to start from scratch
O! Dear, you dear are my perfect mismatch!
How could I choose you from multiple batches?
O! Dear, you dear are my perfect mismatch!

Yesterday I let my down my guard
But today, I will not drown, I will not hide
Once I thought you loved me for being me
There were times, I cried, hoping again to be free
I hope you can relate and understand
I only refer to a brand of boring husbands
Then I was full of vanity, I let go of my identity
Money and fame without love sung my song of destiny

I had years of stuff and conversation that was shallow
Yesterday I stooped low, my personal pleasures I let go
I was on the famous girl and boy dream march
Expensive clothes, champagne and a luxury yacht
I thought marriage can last with the right catch
Yes! With the perfect man, my plan is hatched!
Please my dear! Don't blame me for those affairs
There is something about you I simply could not bear

Now! I don't care if I have to start from scratch
O! Dear, you dear are my perfect mismatch!
How could I choose you from multiple batches?
O! Dear, you dear are my perfect mismatch!
