Maybe It’s Me

No one wants this more than me
Is that why I nitpick?
I don’t expect you to be perfect
I know that I’m not
So why do I put so much pressure on us

I could let things go
Or just find another way to express
What’s wrong with me?
I may be obsessed
I just want it to work
But it is….

Maybe it’s not you
But instead me
And my need
To have everything just right
I keep chipping away at the masterpiece
One chip away
From destroying it all…
