A Dozen Reasons

I don’t know
why you don’t like me that way.
No, strike that.
I can drop a dozen reasons why
you wouldn’t be into me
why anyone wouldn’t want me.
Nobody is capable of listing my faults
better than I am.

There is probably no one
who self-loathes as well as I do.
I don’t have to tell you
how fat, bald and pockmarked I am
but the fears that I try to hide
the insecurities that hide my every action,
I know them intimately.
I probably hate me
in ways you couldn’t imagine.

So I understand,
I get why you wouldn’t want this
too near you.
I can’t help but agree.
I just wish
you weren’t quite so perceptive
and we weren’t in
such utter agreement.
