I trusted you
You said I was enough
I told you I didn’t feel worthy
You said I was enough
You saw her
Thought she was good enough
But I don't want you to come back.
but I won't allow you to come back.
but I deserve better.
but not for me.
When I say ' message me anytime '
I really mean it,
Not small talk but real conversations,
I'm happy to sit and listen to you rant about being alone at lunchbreak,
Tell me all about your day,
Even the littlest details.
Message me at 1am just because you're bored and you can't sleep,
And we can stay up and talk until 3,
Even though we are 543 miles away,
At least we're under the same sky.
Distance means so little when someone means so much,
So if we ever stop talking,
Send me a song,
Because I never want to lose you x
This is a poem for my beautiful Dutch friend Lieke! <3
People are so oblivious to what love is
They allow broken love to fit a description
This is what love is.
Love is not waking up
wondering who you have to be today
for their benefit.
Love is waking up
knowing that you are you and they are they
bringing only goodness.
Love is not saying 'I love you'
when you do not feel it.
Love is looking at someone and smiling
feeling 'I love you' in every language.
Love is not having to dress up and out
just to get them to glance,
to make them compliment you,
and make you feel loved.
Love is being in a crowded room and them, you
being the first person they, you see.
Love is knowing that there is trust,
there is respect,
there is wanting,
there are two.
Love is something that is not a want,
it is a need.
Everyone has a need for love.
Beyond your looks
Beyond your smile
I see your person
I see your soul
I've seen your fears
I've seen your tears
But you chose someone else
But you chose her
You are not the self-sacrificing love I deserve
You didn't deserve all of me and all of everything
I miss you, but only the you you pretended to be.
I missed our kisses
I missed breathing normally
Our oxygen mixed
That is what I missed
You kissed me again
But this time I was suffocating
I had to push you away
to catch my breath
Yet you pulled me back in
You knew I was suffocating
yet you pulled me back in
You're no longer my oxygen
I have no air with you
