i believe myself to be
Unlovable.

crushes are preposterous,
partners are imaginary,
and soulmates are written about in
young adult novels.

i surprise myself,
half the time,
with the absolute commitment
to my own misery.

i am Unlovable.

yet how do you stand there,
and
just,

Refuse?

you laugh at my jokes,
and eat my food,
and give my self-esteem
a fighting chance.

you praise my painting,
and glow at my singing,
and somehow even
listen to my rambling.

you tolerate my anxiety,
and take my advice,
and even make sure that
i know,
at every second of the day,
that you care.

Love feels
so
far


away.



but you make it seem
    Closer,

    Somehow.


so thank you,
for Loving me.
even though the
thought
is
odd.

thank you for knowing me.

thank you for understanding me.

thank you for caring    so    much,
that it hurts both you and me.

and maybe,

one day,


i can Love you back just as much.
it's hard to imagine myself being loved.
i don’t know how you do it.
