I fall for men who show interest

But don’t want me.

I seek solace in the impossibility

Of Us.

I am drawn into my comfort

Of sadness.


For years now

I have been following this pattern.

Fall in love

Affirm my belief.


And then he

He came along.

My shortest fall


Love at first sight?

Sigh, Yes.

But he was different

He wanted me.

The rejection I had learned to seek

Didn’t come.

I expected another hearthache

Instead he brought Joy.


Something about him

Broke me.

I now look for it everywhere

Whole, requited love.


For that and more

I thank him.
