Presumably

You think you know me †
†  
You can tell †  
What I want †
Need †
You got me †  
†  
I used to think †  
That was everything †  
†  
Until I realized †
That in all your knowledge †
You have zero †
†  
You donít hear me †
You give me †
What you need me to have †
What gives you satisfaction †  
†  
Your savior complex †
Drives you to do for me †
†  
I got that covered †
†  
If you really knew me †
You would understand †
That what I need †
What I want †
Is someone who allows me †
To remain me †
Someone who complements me †
Not attempts to complete me †
†  
It took me a while to learn
Iím okay with who I am †
I enjoy my quirkiness †
My intricacies †
Nuances & messiness
I donít need changing
Or someone to take over
I got this  
†  
Donít ever presume to know †
Whatís best for me †  
Pay attention to who you are †
†  
Because trust me †
I have †  
†
