I like that you had to work hard
for my love.
I think you see me as soft-
warm and comfortable, a constant.
But I’m here to tell you
the work continues.
My love is conditional.
Love me when I’m impossible, when the chips
are down, when there’s nothing to say but FUCK
Even though my heart skips a beat
when you enter the room,
Please know- I’m not afraid to leave you.
