Maybe

Maybe your words weren’t meaningless
Maybe the feelings behind them were just
Unsustainable, temporary, fleeting…
And for sure no longer existent.

Maybe I misinterpreted your beautiful words
Maybe you were merely generalizing
Nonetheless, I was all in.
But maybe it was just me.

Desperate

We’re so desperate for love
So desperate to end lonely
We tend to settle for
Insufficient love
Toxic love
Abusive love
Convenient love
A desperate love
But if we take the time to
fall deeply in love with ourselves
especially in our loneliest moments
Lonely soon becomes just a thing
we actually look forward to
And desperate becomes patience
to wait for love deserving of you

I Know

It takes me a while to fall into
the rhythm of partnership because
I know too well how to be alone.
I know too well how to love myself.
So please be patient babe…
I’ll learn to love you as much as I love me.
I’ll get to know you as well as I know lonely.

Heart

I don’t want to make you flutter
in false hope anymore.
I don’t want to make you ache
after yet another failed attempt at love
But trust and be still my heart,
I long just as badly as you do
to find another to love like we do.
