Your manners don’t impress me. They are expected.
It should be a privilege to be able to say “I love you” to someone. It shouldn’t be something people say just because they feel like it. A privilege that is earned. They say you have to earn the right to be loved; no, love is unconditional, if you love someone, they don’t have to earn it. But. The right to tell someone that you love them? That has to be earned. You have to earn the right to be believed.

A phoenix never
turning into ashes
before rising to
meet its rebirth.
Set yourself alight
if that is what it
takes to flourish.

when you find a dandelion the size of your head, it’s a pretty big deal
You think I’m not a goddess?
This is a torch song.
Touch me and you’ll burn.

I won’t beg someone to love me.
I learned long ago that there is no use in hopeless pleas of trying to make someone stay. I am too good to chase someone who does not know my worth and I am too wild to keep waiting for someone who doesn’t acknowledge my value.
I want to be loved unconditionally. I shouldn’t have to fight so hard for it. I do not have the time to prove to someone that I am worth it.
I shouldn’t have to prove any of that; I am worth more than that.
