I don’t need the movie scenes,
all Hollywood,
plastic and fake.
I don’t need the romantic dreams,
turning to nightmares
all full of snakes.
I don’t need the love song
the pulsing of hearts.
I don’t need a ring
threatening to tear us apart.
I just want you,
exactly as you are
filled with fault
and showing scars.
