I am waiting for you to come to me

So that I can share you if I like you.

 

(But what kind of love is that?

Shouldn't I want to share you if I don't like you?

Shouldn't I always like you because I created you?)

 

I don't ever want to lose you because I made you feel

under-appreciated

because I made you feel

under-valued

because I made you feel

replacable.

 

There is no other like you and I learned that if I don't like you when you're not at your best- no one will- and we all deserve that.

 

Dear Poetry, 

 

                                You're my bestfriend, my therapist, you're the first ever love of my life- and I realize why I don't love reading everyone else's- because I dont want you thinking I'm cheating- even though you're not jealous- because you're selfless and understanding....

 

And that's why I love you.

Poetry is my everything- and is my baby. And I'll love her forever.
