I craved intimacy

I painfully watched my self crumble
while you so carelessly
found another.

You pushed me away
when all I wanted
was a shoulder,
to hear you say the words
"I will stay"
forever and even longer.

Instead, you left me.
I understand why,
what's the point of sticking around
once you've got what you wanted.

You only wanted
a second, of my affection.
A one night stand.
Meanwhile I craved
so much more than that.

I craved intimacy
and emotional stability.
I lusted for love
and that was my biggest mistake.
Now I can't stomach the fact that
you will never feel the same way.
