A Love Story With a Twist

A poem about self-respect

It took me years to see
how I loved you
more than
you loved me.

Although, it wasn’t
that simple
you did tease
and flirt unabashedly.

Poetry is my first love. Inspired by intuition & my chunky ginger cat. My favorite place is by the sea, sipping espressos and daydreaming.
