beautiful reflection [poem]

I might be
that lilac lover
that peach blossom princess
I might be that soft
sweet woman you’re looking for
at first glance
you might think me butch
too rough edged and sturdy for that kind of loving
but look closer
listen to the way I talk about life
feel the warmth of my casual affections
as we watch a movie and talk over the slow parts
you’ll see it then
the deep rooted flexibility
the way I seek out someone to balance that
with its opposite
a well formed strength
a forceful heart guiding surprisingly gentle hands
we might be
a beautiful reflection of each other
your need for me based in
what I bring to the table that you lack
it will always be about balance
between the two of us
