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.
