I like you
But I like me more
I’ll love you
But I’ll love me more
I want to adore you
But I need you to see me
I don’t know you
But I can’t help but wonder and see
I want to know if you are real
But everything in me says you’re not
The doubt is killing me slowly
But not slow enough. It’s torture
I need to be free of this obsession
But I tremble at the thought of our end
I quit you like I quit cigarettes. Each day that I awake, I remind myself that I don’t need you. With every breath that I take, I remember that you are not the air that I breathe. You will not be the cancer in my heart. My growth will not be stunted by someone who’s stagnant. The flame that we burned together has been rubbed out of existence on the sole of my boot. There’s only ash.
Sweet memories of yesterday run through my mind
Deep moments of today fill my body
Tantalizing promises of tomorrow consume my soul
Our love is neo soul; rhythmic, connecting and powerful.
Before you put out a thirst trap, make sure people wanna drink what you’re pouring… Otherwise, it’s just a puddle.
People get into relationships for all types of reasons. They fall in love. They lust for a person and want to be near them. They are homeless; hobosexuality. Or they don’t want to be alone. That last one is the most dangerous. And I have a saying that I repeat to myself to keep me on point. “Don’t let loneliness and desperation get you into to a situation you can’t get out of.” Hard stop.
Most times, unless we are dealing with a narcissist who is able really hide who they are, we see the warning signals and we ignore them. #BecauseLonely At the end of the day, we need to be comfortable enough with ourselves to know that being alone doesn’t equate to loneliness. We have to be confident and secure and make sure not to take less than what we deserve. From anyone.
