Short Love Poem

I've never thought of her as perfect. But she was the closest I've ever been to knowing what it means to belong. The truth is, I still don't know what love means, but when I hear the word, I think of her.

She Makes Me Whole

I don’t think
she is perfect.
She is flawed and broken
like the rest of us.
But the pieces she has
left of her heart
match the pieces
missing from mine.
She is not perfect
but she does
make me whole.
