Being heart broken by a man’s whose heart you never owned
A man’s whose laugh you never started
A man’s whose sex drive you never enflamed.
It’s even tougher
When he is the sole owner of your heart
Beating so fast in his hands
Loving him for all he is and isn’t
When he makes you not only giggle
But he calls laughter roaring through your chest
You start to feel happiness within you
Over a stupid joke that accidentally escaped his lips
When just a few words spoken in whispers
Has your kitty purring
Nipples erect and back arched
Wanting him to take your body for all that it has
Wanting him to love you for all that you have
To offer a man in his place
Loving his faults
Praising his skills
Honoring who he is and will be
Preparing him for a better day
You are the woman who makes him smile
You are the woman who inflates his ego
With your own tired breaths
Instead of breathing them into someone who loves you
You heaved everything you have into him
Who you can’t quit for one day
Because you’re afraid he wouldn’t even notice
You’re afraid he would be fine without you.
This is the man you love
And it’s tough
Because he doesn’t love you back
And he probably never will
And what’s tougher
Is that he is your soul mate.
