The Positive View of Myself

Prologue

Do I want more love than she can give or,
Do I want more love than she can give me?
Do I want more love than she is ready to give or,
Do I want more love than she is ready to give me?

What is the relationship between love and attention?
I’m love deprived and very good at getting attention.
I have love to give but I’m only good at finding those who need attention.

The Crux of the Matter

Every time she tells me she isn’t coming I feel it.
The crushing, oppressive weight of the world closing in on me
Every time I feel this weight closing in on me,
It takes everything I have to push back against the darkness

This isn’t the bittersweet, path untravelled, come back to me kind of longing.
This is the I need you, Oh my god what’s wrong with me, Please love me back, kind of longing.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
