I Deserve You

This is my first poem about you.

This is my first real adult relationship after college.

This is my confession to you:

I love you.

I haven’t told you yet.

It’s only been four months,

but I know this feeling,

and I’m sure in this feeling.

It’s crazy to think about it.

What’s even more crazy is the fact I’ve waited until now to know what I deserve,

and to not take anything less.

I deserve you.

I deserve to be treated with respect.

I deserve to be romanced.

I deserve to be called beautiful every day.

I deserve to have all my inspirations encouraged.

I deserve to have all my aspirations supported.

I deserve to not intimidate you

with my confidence,

with my happiness,

with my grit and determination,

with my success;

as so many men in the past have been.

I deserve to smile when it rains.

I deserve to laugh when I cry.

I deserve to overthink

and have you pull me backwards.

I deserve to try new things.

I deserve to explore new places.

I deserve to have fun.

I deserve to live life to the fullest.

All with you.

I deserve to be loved.

And I want to be loved by you.

I Want It All.

You make this seem like it’s old news,

Like I’m experienced when it comes to this,

But I’m not.

It happened.

I can’t take it back,

I can’t rewind time,

But I don’t regret it.

It was supposed to hurt,

It was supposed to be awkward,

It was supposed to be bad.

But it wasn’t any of those things.

I thought I’d feel different afterwards,

But I don’t.

I feel exactly the same as before.

It’s weird,

How much I liked it.

How I want to do it again.

How I would do it every day if I could.

I liked how it made me feel.

How it boosted my confidence.

How I felt wanted and needed in a certain way.

I just liked it, a lot.

I want you to take me for a ride,

Take me high,

Make me rise,

Let it last all night long.

Oh my God.

I want it all. Continue reading I Want It All.
