Previous experience taught me that I was replaceable.
scared you’d find an other.
I wear out pretty quickly and you should find an other.
to be loved for a short time I had learned.
I taught myself I was never enough to be someones only lover.
But I quickly discovered, it’s not the need of needing an other.
it’s the wonders of having another lover.
I learn now
I am enough on my own. We shouldn’t dissolve to become one. We are one and one together.
We can be one with an other and another.
They might last a while, or only exist for one night.
Each one its own hue of light.
No replacing or games of who’s who’s.
I belong to me, and share this with you.
