How does one keep their identity
In such a union?
The struggle pf one person’s needs over another’s?
A battle of wills? The war of the poor me’s
Who will win?
No one I’m afraid
This is not what love is about?
Love is selfless
Your concerns are secondary,
Your motivation being about the greater good
The ability to make someone feel
Better about themselves
Just by time spent, listening, reassuring, bolstering
Their wavering self esteem
And the most important thing of all it is returned tenfold
Love is the act of giving and receiving
Instead it becomes a point scoring exercise
Who’s had the greatest trouble, loss and
sacrificed the most
All in the name of love!
This type of love
Which is not really love at all!
It is a state of mind
I truly do not need nor want
