A poem I wrote.

It makes me happy to read. I haven’t found love yet, but I try and I end up settling because I get desperate sometimes.

But this poem makes me happy because it lets me know I’m worth it. I’m worth loving, and I won’t settle. And that gives me comfort. I’m good enough. I’m not amazing or extra ordinary. But, I’m good enough. And that’s all right with me today.

It is sooooo damn touching. I love the lines as I feel like its from some corner of my mind. I lost hope in love but some small fraction of my heart still believes I deserve to be loved and wouldn’t settle for anything less even if it takes longer. I smiled at the very instant of reading “To whom I love, and cannot find” and I knew i’d like it so continued reading until the end and yet again.

“Until we meet or meet again” – I’m assuming it like, it could be a person that is completely someone I never met or restoring a lost love. I’m not a big fan of poems cuz I’m not smart enough to understand it but I just liked every line of yours.

Lol honestly I’ve written two in my life, one was very dark when I was in a deep depression actually I think I posted it on here too. But I like this one a lot better

And yes that’s exactly what I meant. Maybe I do have a lost love or a missed connection.. I won’t know until I figure out who this poems about though lol

Thanks again 🙂

Its sadly.. romantic.. you should come back and tell us when you find 😉

Well I don’t think it’s happening soon but I remain optimistic. Be great to have a family one day if it’s in the cards. And if not that’s ok too. Just have to find other ways to give my life meaning.
We can only do with what we have right?

True. I do not have hopes of finding the love of my life but if it ever happened by chance, when Beelzebub forgets about me for a second, it would turn all the bad things that happened to me disappear. If Only..!!!

I can understand that. Love makes you feel brand new. Unbreakable.
Be the love of your life until somebody else can 🙂
Treat yourself the way you want to be treated!

Uhm, that’s hard cuz I gotta spend on me, for me, by me and I don’t love me cuz i’m now poor af. JK :p (but there’s truth too)

Lmao!
I get it. I’m broke af right now. But I wrote a poem, it cost me nothing and it kept me busy for the better half of a day and it made me feel good too to accomplish something even if it was something small.
Money doesn’t buy love thankfully
Well.. for most people.
I’m sure if I was Rockefeller rich I could buy some temporary love but I’m not so I’ll have to make due with what I have lol

There’s a difference when you like your poem and when someone else appreciates it, right? I can buy me chocolates, go for a candle light dinner myself, watch Netflix, drink wine and love me. But that’s pathetic right? “Treat yourself the way you want to be treated!” doesn’t actually work lol.
I agree, money doesn’t buy love. What does? We are millions of lonely people trying to find someone to love. After all these years, many of us are still depressed and can’t figure that out.

I’m glad you liked it

And I’m glad you feel you deserve to be loved, I hope everyone can feel that way, even if it’s just for a moment.
Things like this help me remember I’m worth it 🙂

You’re def’ly worth it. You interpret the thoughts of many others like you and it feels good.

souptool 3/21/2017 - 7:34 pm

There is and there isn’t.
It’s nice to be appreciated. But I didn’t write it to be appreciated. Or maybe I did I’m not sure I had anything planned when I wrote it. But after it was done I appreciated the feeling it gave me. It gave me a new perspective. Knowing that I wanted something that I deserved was empowering.
And I wouldn’t have gotten that had I not done it.

Now that’s just an example, but treating the way you want to be treated, if that’s what you want, wined and dined. And doing that by yourself. That’s not pathetic at all. That’s empowering. If you haven’t found someone worth giving you that experience remember there’s no one that can treat you the way you want better than you.

I take myself to movies. I go out for supper and eat alone. And if that’s pathetic to other people then they’re not the type of people I want to know anyways.
I love myself today. I haven’t always had that luxury and it’s because I do little things like that that I do. And now I look for someone that deserves me.
Yes I want to make someone happy as well but the key thing is that I won’t settle for someone that won’t go the length I will to make us both as happy as possible.cause That’s what I deserve.
