love, a nice to have

come towards me

don't fear, nothing will go wrong

your thick skin is enough

don't fear rejection

why do I scare you?

might not happen today

but tomorrow

there is failure in the past

but now success

i'm ready

moving forward

thinking about a future

don't fear

be impulsive

find a happy place

looking into the future

what else is here?

not expecting this

is it nostalgia?

asking for help

you said,

maybe, you abandoned yourself

i thought

i did what was right

i reached out

matured from my turbulent past

i knew when I was wrong

judging

why did i go there?

what was i trying to save?

not letting another slip through

thought i was helping

enduring more tough times

energies

finances

bad relationships cost us

finances, self, emotions

questioning everything

self-worth

i felt lonely

insecure

giving and giving

I saw nothing

coming back

empty

taking and taking

time

kindness

now providing myself

love is forever

an add-on

in-addition

a nice to have

but not, fundamental to

my well being

transparency

I'm not angry

i'm smarter

independent

surrounding myself with

uplifting

kind

sincere

i see differently

forever changed

out of the challenges

growing

providing

not others

love is now

a nice to have

replacing

the most difficult lesson

forced to learn

i always come first

i won't forget

a nice to have

you said,

maybe, you abandoned yourself

you were right

i did

not worth it

a lesson

i will never forget

and forced over and over

to learn

love

is a nice to have
