not enough

you were nothing
more than
a beautiful
idea
and sadly
what I imagined was
more real
than
you

heard

I have shed so many tears
for the people who left me
for the people who used me
for the people who didn’t want me
for the people who don’t understand me
for the people who don’t know how to love me
when I finally cried for myself
the whole world opened up
at the sound of my voice
and I realized
it was mine
