When Perfect Shows Up

Many people end up with close-fit halves because they were afraid the perfect half may never show. So they settle with the ‘good enough’ at hand. But there’s a certain feeling reserved for those who get to be with the ying to their yang. It’s like a whole town told you to sleep because there was no tooth fairy, and the longer you stayed up the greater the fool you looked, but just before dawn she showed up and the joke was on the town!

For everyone with someone they fit right into, who had to wait or pay any price of any sort, this piece will fill you up. For those who are on the verge of settling with the next best thing, this may just give you ammunition to hold on a wee bit. Because when you find him, and when she finally makes the entrance! Ayaayaahyahyaaaii!

When Perfect Shows Up.

I was standing there all by myself,

Long after everyone was gone.

The voices in my head were starting to win;

There was no way I was going to meet a you.

*      *     *

What was wrong with me, expecting so much?

Why did I ask for so much gorgeousness

With so much class, with so much heart

With so much virtue, with so much sweetness?

Why didn’t I ask for something more realistic?

If I had, I’d have been long gone before you showed up.

*      *     *

But you, you know how to make an entrance don’t you?

You make a bang sound like a whisper

You make a crowd look like shadows

You make a quake feel like a shudder

You make the sun look like midnight

And you don’t even try.

*      *     *

You reach into parts of me I didn’t know existed

And fulfill desires I was afraid to have

You make the mess and ache that preceded you

Seem like such a small price to pay.

*      *     *

It’s hard to give my age now

Because it feels like I started to live

When you came my way.

*      *     *

You are Christmas and New Years

you are four wheels and the spare tyre

You are the woman and the side chic

You are everything and a bag of chips
