HOW TO LOVE ME: A GUIDE

by Girlinshadows (Theheroiccouplet)

Read all of my poems

and become one with what I write.

 

Listen to the way I play the piano,

The way I occasionally sing off-pitch.

 

Notice how I chew my food,

What I sound like coming down the stairs.

 

Go through every corner of my chaotic mind,

and come out unafraid.

 

Emerge from darkest memories

And fight away my fears.

 

On days when I am hard to love,

Love me like it’s the easiest thing in the world.

 

Love me in a clumsy, imperfect way.

I don’t care;

Just as long as you do.

 

-F.Z (thewanderess)
