All That She Needs to Know
All that She Needs to Know….
She says to him in all her honesty
Tell me you love me as if it’s your very first time
Make it sound like those words are strangers to your lips
Make me believe you’ve never loved another before me
Even though I know you have already experienced that feeling
I need to know for once I’m first in someone’s life
Not just merely a footnote, an annotation
But that my story is special and I’m deserving of adulation
If there’s nothing else in this life you can give to me
At least give me a moment to let me know I’m worthy.

(I’ve read this a few times as I’ve written it, and it reads of hope, despair and longing. A longing to be validated in the eyes of another when we’re unable to validate and appreciate ourselves. Maybe it has another meaning which will dawn on me later.)
