New Poem - One Who Loves Me Must...

   idolize my ugliness
"One who loves me must
tolerate my gloominess,
remembering my smiles."
and be turned off by my vanities.

   tolerate my gloominess,
remembering my smiles.

   be fulfilled in us
though made vulnerable by sharing.

   admire my focus
while ignoring my stubborn ways.

   despise my distant moments,
seeking renewal in my affections.

   love me
as much as one could loathe me.

    To reverse any
    above would make
    hate, not love.

I wrote "The Birth Of A Poem" about writing this piece.  You can find this here.
