You Then Had Flaws - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Did you believe I would slit my wrists.
Because I realize,
A relationship between us did not exist?

I knew when entering it,
Baggage you carried.
And issues with honesty you could not face.
Remember...
I approached you.
Knowing all of that I chose to embrace.

Did you believe I would slit my wrists.
Because I realize,
A relationship between us did not exist?

What made you think I had no consciousness?
And who convinced you,
You were that attractive?
Remember...
I approached you.
Knowing all of that I chose to embrace.

And you then had flaws.
No matter how others,
May today discover none to erased.
You then had flaws.
And I remember all of it.
There will be no splitting of wrists of balling of fists,
Because of you.
