wanting to be

i spend so much time reaching for connections that have been severed on the other end


i am so terribly lonely that i would rather deal with people loving me for my actions rather than for my heart


i want to be able to just do nothing or say silly things and not feel judged for my "stupidity" 


i give so much love and i feel like i have to fight so hard to get anything in return 


am i just hard to love? am i not worth it? 


This poem is about: 
My family
My community



being 24 feels so lonely and it's exhausting to hurt this much
