To be loved does not guarantee your ability to love.
To be wanted does not mean you feel desirable.
To be cared for does not pass for being healed.
Sometimes, your heart breaks from being too full.
Too full of unequal love.
Too full of guilt.
Too full of reproach.
Too full from absence.
It’s harder to feel joy
when love is offered on a silver platter.
sadness billowing and drowning.
