I want you to know that
Im only lonely when you hold me
Only starved when there is no food in front of me
Only full when your kisses meant nothing
And I’m back on track remembering that the love I gave you was
actually just me being silly
Forgetful when you ask after my heartbeat
Full of optimism when you smile at me
and yet heartbroken that you would think of me only at night
When the moon is high
and the size of your bed makes you feel empty
Snuggled in the sheets with a woman to hold your body
Keeping at bay the nightmares that come from a lifetime of yearning
Never satisfied with the love that is hanging
On your every word
The love that is waiting for you to call me pretty…beautiful
To say you love my laugh
even in your worst moods
The love that awaits if you would claim me
no matter the crowd that surrounds you.
Hoping you think of me next valentines
Or possibly come around to loving me by April fools…
I am full of deep breaths when I am crying
And I only cry when there is no moon.
