You don’t need as much reassurance as me
I need words, actions, intentions.
Words, so that I know what shapes your truth and lies make
Actions, so that I can recognise what happiness and sadness becomes in your eyes
And intentions so that I can be hopeful…
Hopeful so that even when you don’t live up to your words or speak louder with your actions, I still have something to hold on to.
Give me a reason to not let go.
I know most don’t need as much reassurance as me
But I pray you stick with me anyway
And entertain my need to be loved better.
