I have loved
The wolf in sheep’s clothing
So many times
In many forms
Every one a new disguise,
To hid the sheep.

I have loved
Hundreds of fantasies
In varying forms
From crushes to celebrities.
A face to give
To the characteristics
I crave before I sleep.

Few days before February 14th now
And I am single.
I should be lonely
I should be imagining
A fantasy will come,
Sweep me off my feet.
But for the first time
I am looking forward
To being with myself.
If people ask
“Aren’t you lonely?”
I can shake my head and say
“Nope. I am Enough.”
Because I am Loved
More now than ever.
