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.

If

If we aren’t best friends what’s the point?
If I can’t hold all of your secrets, who will?
If I can’t tell you when you’re wrong,
how will we grow together in this thing?
If you don’t see the value I can add to your life,
why still hold on to such a liability?
If I’m not the first person you call when in need,
how could I ever be your lifeline?
If our life experiences aren’t synonymous,
why does that have to mean we can’t relate?
If I don’t impact your thoughts & decisions now,
what future is there between us?
If I am none of these things to you,
why are we even still a “we”?
