Not A Need (Poem #107)

“When will you ever fall in love?”
Same old lines
my same white lies
forcing me to fall in love
kept pushing me hard
as if my presence isn’t enough

How could I be required
to have a hand to hold
to have a man by my side
when the night gets cold

I guess you haven’t been told
that I was raised alone
and did just fine
before any guy has shown

So if nights ever go cold
and I am all by myself
rest assure, I brought my own coat
and to keep me warm,
I do not need anyone’s help

I haven’t told you at all
so I am telling you now
that the need to have someone
won’t be the reason that I fall.

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
