Is It Just Me

I am like everyone else

I want love

I want to be needed

I want to matter in someone else’s life

But is the heartache and tears

Worth the struggle

Or am I just the abnormal one

Who finds more work than support

Sees more take than give

Feels more hurt than help

In every chance I’ve had at love

  1. A great response for the prompt. It is beautifully written with plenty of emotion. I really loved this one.

    As for the narrator’s thoughts, perhaps tears and pain are all part of the process. But I do know this, we all deserve love, affection, and companionship.

    1. Thanks so much for your beautiful comments. I agree that we deserve all three of those things… hard to find someone who will be willing to share that much.
