a poem on needing another

Enough

why must i crave the love of a man?

why must i think i do not have love

because no man has ever truly loved me?

why does having romantic love

fill a void

a gaping hole

in your heart?

the love from your mother is stronger

the love from your father is more powerful

the love from the universe is more infinite.

so, why must i need a love from

a member of the opposite sex

in order to feel

valued

safe

supported

protected

and

loved.

I have so many other supporters, protectors, and lovers.

why can’t they be enough?
