If You Want Me


If You Want Me

By: Monica Renata

 

To get to know a person

To find out where their thoughts lie

Is the hardest thing to do in this world

Since we judge with our eyes

 

To see me and have an interest sparked

That is a flattering thing indeed

But I want you to see more of me

See what your eyes can’t see

 

If you want me for my beauty

I suggest you walk the other way

For there is more to me

Than what you see today

 

If you want me for my beautiful eyes

Don’t blame me if they so do hide

For those eyes you say are beautiful today

May be the ones you soon make cry

 

Flesh seems to rule the world

Flesh is all you see

But I want you to look deeper

I want you to see me

 

For I am clothed in doubt

But your words could perhaps disrobe me

Just saying “I’m pretty” makes me pout

Because it proves that you still don’t know ME

 

Admire my beautiful mind

Not the flesh that soon will fade

Speak to my soul and touch it

For that touch will be more intense than the touch of my skin

 

I want you to want me for what you see inside

I want you to want me for my heart

For if you want me for what you see on the outside

That means you didn’t want me from the start
