And I learned ‘You deserve better’
was sometimes no more
than a synonym for ‘I don’t want to hurt you,
and I want you to be happy,
but I don’t love you anymore’
I think I keep telling myself you never loved
me at all because it is far less terrifying a
prospect than the possibility you did, you truly
did, but all of a sudden, and for no particular
reason, you stopped.

As I have aged and become an adult,
what I look for in a partner has changed.
It is simpler now, purer, but also agonisingly
hard to find: I’m looking for somebody who
makes me feel something again, somebody
who relights the fire.

and just how rare it is.

Some show love rarely
and mostly in small quiet gestures;
sharing an umbrella in the rain,
leaving you the last slice of their pizza,
throwing their arm around you
when you are afraid.
love does not have to be flamboyant
or loud to be present.

Some show love differently
but that does not necessarily make it less.
