Invalid Attraction (Poem #95)

You were never my kind of guy

my attraction is usually backed up

with a dozen reasons why


I’ve known before

but never imagined myself falling

because you are a 4

and a 10 is what I’m looking

But when everyone seemed blunt

and I was sure you’re not the one

you showed up in the oddest way there is

with a smirk on your lips

and the confidence to take the risk


So I said, this is it

someone imperfect

someone real

to sweep me off my feet

someone who’ll make me realize

that boys aren’t meant to be rated

In their faces, true love can’t be detected

You have made me realize

that love is not measured by the attractiveness

the good-looking doesn’t always love the best
