I lie at your feet like a begging child.
Hoping and praying that you’ll love me back.
I scratch at your back door like a stray cat,
Waiting for a morsel of affection.
I unapologetically give my all…
Imprudent and weak,
Feeble like a branch
And continuously in amazement of
What you have the power to do to me.
Sorrowfully disappointed with what I
Allow and ceaselessly accept.
I lie under your arm and
Listen to the sound of you existing…
Taking you in each time I inhale,
Exhaling expectations and things I deserve
Because I unapologetically love you
More than I.
