Aloof to Love

I really want to find some one who likes me.
Someone that makes me smile,
And gives me butterflies.

And then I want to completely reject them
for no reason.

I want to like them
And never get close to them.

I want to think fondly of the way things could be
And do nothing.

I want to get to know them through the grapevine
And ultimately decide
That the attraction has declined.

Because I also want to be arrogant
And independent
With a plethora of platonic friendships.

Makes me better than you.
Makes me stronger and wiser
Maybe makes me happy and secure.

All I know
Is it means I’ll never depend on love to be whole.


About Jessica Lee

Jessica is a twenty-something poet who performs most of her work on stage in Spoken Word. She has found writing therapeutic since she was child, and has pursued it ceaselessly. She enjoys writing even the most fleeting thoughts and dreams as SensicalRavings. Between long retail shifts, she enjoys writing observational pieces (always with a slant) of locally relevant subjects as ALLGainesville. If you appreciate inspiring, coming-of-age suppositions, become a follower. Though it's not always roses, it's raw!
