“From a love loss, a greater understanding remains.” — Samuel J.
Fiction. Based on a True Understanding of Self- Love.
By Rebecca M.
You’re his final answer on Who Wants to be a Millionaire,
his permanent lifeline.
You are the flickering wish as he blows out the candles.
You’re his childhood teddy bear;
The one he held close each night before bed.
You’re the joy that turns on the bright, blinking light
of a new message on his phone.
The happiness of a call going through
after many failed attempts.
You’re the first gasp of air
after a long time underwater.
To him, you’re everything,
Everything I’m not.
But the right person will love me
for everything I am.
