Love Me

16609

You’re supposed to love me,
No matter what day,
No matter what time,
No matter what.

You’re supposed to support me,
Build me up,
Give me strength,
And urge me forward.

You’re supposed to hold me,
Wipe my tears away,
When the world
Overwhelms and frightens.

You’re supposed to be my safe space,
My secret haven,
Where I can mend a broken wing,
And learn to fly again.

But my reality,
And my supposed to be,
They’ve never quite aligned,
Always divided.

You’re supposed to love me,
You’re supposed to support me,
You’re supposed to hold me,
You’re supposed to be my safe space.

But your words cut me,
The tears flow
And I FINALLY see,
It’s not me.
