When I make the effort
to dig deep
into who you are,
know you are loved.

In awe,
inspired,
captivated,
interested,
dazed,
uplifted.
Yes, in love with your being.

I’ll align myself
up close,
breathing in your talent
and exhaling
knowledge and pride.

You’ve won my heart.

Obvious Deception

Untitled

i’m not the enemy

wrong
you were never a friend

friends will…
listen
offer a shoulder to cry on
give tissues as needed
nurture
be excited to be with you
tell the truth
protect
support
engage
comfort
laugh with you
act like your #1 fan
shield you from oncoming shit
be ready and waiting

me having to stand up for myself
and up to you
proved once and for all
you were never willing
to give what should have
come so naturally
