Longing

For years I would have denied it,Suppressed the feelings and shoot you down,But as I get older and possibly more mature,I realize that that through it all, I have simply been longing…Longing for someone I can trust explicitly,Longing for someone to love me unconditionally,Longing for someone to be my person,Longing to fully let my guard…

Teenage Love

It’s hard to take a step back, when you’re seeing yourself through everyone’s eyes. The everlasting couple, never separating one without the other, The odd standard of longevity when in fact things weren’t what they seemed, They ooh and ahh over your love story, yet you can’t quite seem to understand what the rom com…
