our relationship

To be free; I so wish

To be desired is my addiction.

In this confusion I somehow thrive.


I flirt,

deeply in love with the attention;

the chase, the complements, the attraction, the lust.

That is our relationship.


Until, you asked me to love you.

yet you already know;

it’s not your love I crave.
