This ran through my mind a lot during an extensive quarantine.

I love you 

in every sense of the word

I don’t get the same love

in every sense of the term

 

I watch you from afar

with every sense that I have

I scroll on my feed

to see every fling that you had

 

Every guy you enticed

made yours, for the night

Every girl you played nice

with when they needed a lie

 

I see the way you handle them, such grace

a tear shed, a promise broken, a life lost

You were there, nurturing and healing

everyone listening knows the feeling

 

Poetry, 

I love you 

in every sense of the word

I don’t get the same love

in every sense of the term
