The Perfect Woman
It was last night that we were friends
Lovers, partners and all things else
But today is the beginning to the end
Now, we will remain at our own ends
Last night you told me there was someone new
How can I tolerate this, added to all else I do?
Were we not destined to be together till the end?
Wonder what really happened to us then?
You also said I was not woman enough for you –
Cause I talked too much and was egotistic too
Affectionate and warm I wasn’t to you –
In addition to that always nagging you
You said I should be polite and adjust with you
Be supportive, not draw comparisons of you
I should listen without a debate too
Remain calm, totally trusting you
I don’t fit into the grove of a perfect woman
For I flare at the slightest provocation
Arguments are an integral part with me
As you said I talk nonsense incessantly
A man you said there is out there for me
But you certainly are not meant for me
I can settle for any of them I want
You had found the woman you truly want
I know what you said of me is so untrue-
Perhaps jealousy made me a stranger to you
I knew there was another woman you were seeing
But I prayed and hoped this wasn’t really true
Why didn’t you just leave me, with my dignity intact?
Excuses I didn’t need, of your new woman I knew
Killing my spirit was so brutally cruel
Can I overcome this humiliation so rude?
Love is the tolerance of weaknesses, I knew
To accept strengths one need not love true
I’m not the woman for you, you said, didn’t you?
A perfect woman accepts flaws – like I did of you
