Cavities

I didn’t like the way I was taught to love

so I pushed it down.

I didn’t like the way heartbreak felt

so I vowed to never feel it again

I didn’t like the way I was loved

so I decided not to be.

And it killed me.

Because the need to be loved

never really went away.

I just pretended that it did

I ignored it

as it ate me up inside

and now I’m left with cavities

I’m not quite sure I have the capacity

to fill.
