Spoken Word: My Man Puts Me on a Pedestal
My man puts me on a pedestal, and I let him.
It's not about pride or arrogance; it's about knowing that he truly sees me. In his eyes, I am something special, something worth admiring.
I can't help but feel a warmth spread through me every time I see that look in his eyes.
You know, it's easy to be skeptical in this world, to doubt the sincerity of someone's admiration. But with him, it's different.
It's in the little things, the way he listens when I speak, the way he surprises me with my favorite coffee on a rainy morning, the way he holds my hand as if it's the most precious thing in the world. It's in those moments that I know he genuinely admires me.
And I get comfortable on that pedestal.
Not in a way that makes me complacent or takes his admiration for granted, but in a way that makes me want to be the best version of myself.
I want to live up to the image he sees in me, to be deserving of that admiration.
Sometimes, I look at myself in the mirror and wonder if I truly deserve this love, this pedestal he's placed me on.
But then I remember that love isn't about perfection; it's about acceptance and growth. It's about two imperfect souls finding perfection in their connection.
So, I embrace it, this feeling of being admired and cherished. I let it fill me with confidence and gratitude.
And I promise myself that I'll keep working to be the woman he sees on that pedestal, because he deserves nothing less than the best of me.
