Not Good Enough

He doesn’t love me.
Can’t love me.
Won’t love me.

Does this mean
that I am
Not good enough?

I try and try
without avail.
Nothing works.

Does this mean
that I am
Not good enough?

I struggle to
make myself better.
I have “Fake” written all over me.
Still.

Does this mean
that I am
Not good enough?

I worry
Panic
Cry
Makes no difference.

Does this mean
that I am
Not good enough?


I want to move on
away from this place of hurt.
But nagging in
the back of my mind:

Am I
Not good enough?
