The country group Alabama has a song with this title. It was playing in the background when I wrote this. In so many ways it was my inspiration for this poem. What better title could I have given it then what inspired it? For he IS "Close Enough To P

Close Enough To Perfect 


Twice a week 

you stand before me 

in all your glory. 

The very sight 

takes my breath away. 

It isn't only the 

outward beauty 

I gawk at. 

I also ogle the soul. 


From your shiny, amazing 

brown eyes 

to the awesome, splendid 

hues of your aura 

I inspect the allure 

which oozes 

from your pores. 


I squint at the bright sun 

illuminating your skies. 

I glare at the darkness 

skulking in the corners. 

I stare at the open landscape 

and long to explore 

every inch, curve, and branch. 

I focus on the mighty drum 

beating in your chest. 

I snoop and spy on things 

never seen before. 

I eyeball the things which have. 

I peek in locked doors. 

I brazenly walk in open ones. 

I gape at your 

appealing qualities. 

I eye the 

scars, bruises, and flaws 

with deviance and love. 


Without the past 

you wouldn't be 

the person you are today. 

With every glimpse, 

with every unseen sight revealed, 

with every uncharted depth mapped, 

I fall deeper and deeper 

in love with you.
