Self-Love

i am no stranger to loss,

i have had many a best friend turned lover,

confusing kind words for affection

mixing secrets with lost hands,

hands that touched more than my heart

in more than just gentle ways

i am no stranger to loss,

maybe that’s why with you I’m less cautious

and mixed signals might be necessary

so we both have an excuse as to why we could never blossom into love

you belong in the friendzone

and I should not be motivated by fear of being alone

yet here are we

calling what we do meant to be

when will I learn to look for love in the right place?
