Wants

I want a forever partner more than I want the
idealistic marriage we all get lost trying to find.
I want a kind love more than I want a lover.
I want someone who truly loves themselves
because I’ve learned one can only love me
to the extent they honestly love themselves.

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.
