until then i’ll still continue to write

one day
i will write from lived experience.
one day
i’ll come home unable to stop smiling,
heart fluttering, cheeks blushing
because he said
“you’re perfect”.
i cannot wait
for that day when i
come home and
type out
those words and hit publish
for everyone to read.
then i’ll be writing from lived experience
that somebody loves me.

until then i’ll still continue to write
