sad-eyes

You look at me

Eyes tinted with supplication

Helpless, In need, and Expectant

The look in your eyes asks me for more

But don’t you know I have given my all?

Don’t you know I always do?

I pour out my soul

In helpless surrender

All that I have floods around you

Kisses you lightly

Gently pushes you forward

The love drains me

But I lie satisfied

Content, Happy, and Exhausted

And I look at you

Eyes barely open

Watching the waves sway you

Caress you

And bring you closer to where you’d like to be

And before I sleep I relish in your happiness

I breathe it in proudly

And before I sleep I notice you looking at me

Eyes tinted with supplication

Helpless, In need, and Expectant

The look in your eyes asks me for more

And I cry because I cannot give it

And it hurts me, as I lie there knowing

That surely if you would like me to live

You would accept that there is nothing more that I can give.

Love Me Anyway

 

Vintage_Porcelain_Dolls

I’m always right.

You’re always wrong.

Yes.

But you should love me anyway.

 

Sometimes I’m mean.

For no reason at all.

Yes.

But you should love me anyway.

 

Will I always be the prettiest at the ball?

No.

But you should love me anyway.

 

Will I still enter chin up as if I am?

Yes.

But you should love me anyway.

 

Am I the daintiest of flowers?

A porcelain peach?

No.

But you should love me anyway.

 

Do I even fully know what that means?

No.

But you should love me any way.

 

Will every word and every action show my love?

No.

But you should love me anyway.

 

Am I what I’ll always be?

Most likely…

And please just love me anyway.
