My Love Has Abandonment Issues

my love has abandonment issues

My love has abandonment issues.
My love hates sleeping alone.
My love, a clenched fist around your heart;
yes, my love is that terrifying
because it doesn’t know release.
Imagine the moon, how she sets the ocean
free to spill over distant shorelines only to
clutch it back to her chest again and again.
We call this ‘tide’.
We call it ‘gravitational pull’.
My love is like that —
desperate, unapologetic.
Except they don’t write scientific theories
around my love; this swelling in my chest
is too big to be understood.
Big enough to have its own gravity
and some nights, even strong enough
to pull you back into my arms.”

Let People Lose You

Let people lose you. Let people be wrong about you. Learn to leave well enough alone.Often, the greatest peace is not found in correcting others. It’s found in correcting yourself, accepting the lessons, and knowing when to walk away.
