I wrote this poem when I was green, naive, and a bit deceived! Ayeeee, that rhymed. No, but seriously, I wrote this when I was angsty and in strong “like” with someone. Poetry is not my normal form of expression but I guess all things are possible when you’re in your feelings. 😉
There is one thing that we all want. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from, or what you’ve gone through. We all want love.
