"...I long to be loved.
For grazing fingernails on my skin without request.
For spontaneity, and carefree.
I long to be heard without being patronized.
I wish to be held like I'm weightless, and complimented 'til I believe it.
Awhile has it been since someone loved me instead of lusted for me.
These boys don't want me, my mind.
They beg for my body.
Drooling gold from perfect ivory teeth.
They are thieves.
Last few boys I said I loved laughed at me.
I need embrace and the strands of my hair played with.
I want someone to memorize my eyes; instead, I memorize their lies.
I need a mind of waterfalls for my mind of oceans.
I need a heart of fire for my heart of flame.
But all I have received is games.
I want to be looked at in that special way, someone who adores me.
Someone who wants to know all of me.
I want something from the movies, even the fighting, if someone was fighting for me.
I like flowers and personal letters.
I would love someone to show me I matter.
I don't want possessive or obsessive.
Must I always have abuse and toxicity for someone to "love" me?
I wish someone would try for me, but I guess that takes effort and energy they don't want to strain.
But I want someone who won't let go when I start to fall mentally, or things get tough.
But in that case, I've never had love..."
