Left Loving…

left:
alone,
loving,
to be the last one caring…

I choose to love you,
but sometimes it seems that I am always the one
left loving
and never loved.

I fancy myself a writer, a tea drinker, and a stare-at-the-sky kind of gal :)
I am currently writing "Kanda Land", "The Universe Inside Her II: a book of unsorted poetic letters", and, of course, "The 'Eternal I'" is in the works!

One reply on “Left Loving…”

…You ask me to care,
but do you?
Care about me?

I am always the last to care,
I think it’s my job.
To care even when I’m not cared for.
To care beyond the burdensome load of my presence.
Am I not worth caring about?
Do I not deserve love or help or care, too?
I am left loving,
chained to the responsibility of caring,
even alone,
even (and maybe especially) when it is never returned.
