Enough

I wasn’t about to write Valentines Day cards, so I wrote this instead. Remember to love yourself today.

Should you be so needed
as the breath of their desire,
Should you be so blessed
To be unpetalled by their love,
Should you be forgotten
At the moment that they tire,
You would have a lover.

Should you be so lucky
To share your brain amongst two bodies,
Should you be so heard
To be trusted when you’re doubtful,
Should you be so held
Yet swing freely from the holding,
You would have a friend.

If you only walked
At the breast of your own shadow,
If you only dined
At a table set for one,
If you only saw
How much you really mattered,
You would have enough.
