I spent a lot of time searching
for affection in shallow places
I gave people bits of me
they didn't deserve
and I let myself be hurt because
I thought that's what I deserved
but once I let go
of trying to shove puzzle pieces
in places that didn't fit,
once I let go of all the hate
I secretly had stored in the
gashes that decorate my heart
I came to terms with myself
and loved more than ever before
i met you
