#97) Patchwork Prince

Build him up however you like, idealize his manufactured parts

Throw in every aspect your mind can think to desire, and wrap him in a cloak of dreams

.

Make him the epitome of all your longing and love him exclusively

As all others continue to fall short of expectation

.

Only he can be trusted to hold your faith and never betray

Only he can rescue you from any trap the world may spring

And only he can keep you from falling down, over and over again

.

However far you travel, he will stay by your side

However loud you cry, in him you can confide

.

However bright you shine, he will keep you burning near

However soft you speak, he will always, always hear

.

Endeavor to break him down, for he will never crumble

.

Give to him your heart, and know he will not fumble

.

Polish his mounds of pieces, and make his edges smooth

Assemble a handsome face with a smile one can’t refuse

.

Characterize him noble, resplendent and refined

.

Unveil the patchwork prince, perfection you’ve designed
