Unconditionally

I need you to love me

all of me

unconditionally –

do not compare my success to yours

for the perception of mine

on the outside

is not what it seems

do not spark jealousy 

when I seem more stable

I need you to love me

all of me

unconditionally –

when you see me packing a suitcase

two weeks before we leave on an adventure

do not judge

or tell me how wrinkled my shirts will be

understand I preplan

and I would

years in advance if I could

I need you to love me

all of me

unconditionally –

when my attitude grows short

I tell you to please not talk to me

understand there is a war of anxiety

battling internally

that I need my space

and cold water

I am not shutting you out

but allow me distance

without fear of me turning to someone else

for my energy needs to be channeled internally

 

I need you to love me

all of me

unconditionally

and I promise my dear

I will do the same for you 

POE(MS)
