The Only Two People in the World

He saw past the blemishes in me
that others scorned me for,
My outer skin he would not see,
He only saw what was in my heart's core.
He paid no heed to what others said,
My words were all he ever heard.
It mattered not that others stared.
To him, we were the only two people in the world.

    The loved that these two persons shared was so deep
    that it made them feel that they were the only two in the
    world. Reminds me of Adam and Eve the first humans
    created by God. A perfect union until they disobeyed.
    An inspiring write.

    First and foremost,10/10.
    It's a poem of a very high standard, as it conveys your mind precisely, in just eight lines. It's a pleasure to read this kind of a poem, where your heart sings the glory of a person who appreciates you for whatever you are worth.
