I think I’m pretty interesting

Someone worth getting to know

I’ll sit and hold your hand

I'll try not to let you down

I notice when you’re sad

I pay attention when you speak

I'm not exactly criminally underrated;

Maybe a blip just off the radar

More a flash in your peripheral vision

A rough draft version

Of an eventual revision

You might tape to the corner of your mirror

I have a few assets. 

I think I’m ok

I think I’m doing ok.  

I'm afraid to say it out loud

Someday I’ll ask you if it’s true

But I’d never insist

I’ll leave it here in a poem

Lest you think me a narcissist.
