I'am alone,I like I always am
though perhaps not in the usual fashion
as ı told you

whether or not you are with me is immaterial
you exist outside my affection,it is possible
you were never in it,after all

neither are you the you
I address and adore in this poem

see,the injustice is
nobody has to love back to
be loved which is to say:nobody
has to be deserving of love

to receive it

✗ ✗ ✗ ✗ ✗ ✗

When you say you love me

Know I love you more

And when you say you need me

Know I need you more
