a thousand people could love you,
adore you completely.
but your mind will throw all of its attention
on the one who turned away.
the one who couldn’t love you for you,
who wanted you to be someone else.
to fit into their mold.
a perfect fantasy.
but it took me time…
to learn this wasn’t love.
for love sees your flaws…
your true self…
and doesn’t need a reason to love you.
love doesn’t hide behind fear.
cherish those who love you boldly.
who aren’t afraid to declare it.
the ones who would give the world just to see you smile.
they are the ones who truly matter.
