Gently

I’ll let you keep the upper hand if it makes you feel secure enough to keep me around. I know you’re scared to be vulnerable  but baby, I’ll hold you gently.   -May 2020

Dating Misery

Just when I start to pull you close Is when it starts to end. It feels like irony or heaven just in need of a laugh. I need a man who will open his arms to me and finally put this dating misery to an end.   -May 2020

I’m only giving the energy that I receive

Since I’m back in the dating game I’ve embraced a new philosophy of only giving out the same energy that I’m receiving.
