I won’t beg someone to love me. I learned long ago that there is no use in hopeless pleas of trying to make someone stay. I am too good to chase someone who does not know my worth and I am too wild to keep waiting for someone who doesn’t acknowledge my value. I want to be loved unconditionally. I shouldn’t have to fight so hard for it. I do not have the time to prove to someone that I am worth it. I shouldn’t have to prove any of that; I am worth more than that.

I prayed,
and you came,
like a plethora of suns.
Like a sky full of moons,
and a mouth full of well wishes.
Like hands full of warmth,
and a heart that has ached for a century,
finally finding love.
You came as a result of my asking,
as a result of midnight prayer,
and midday begging.
As a result of red hot skin
and puffy eyes.
You are so much good,
birthed from years of sadness.
You are a proof that God exists.
