all i want

i don’t want your words of flattery

you tell me i’m beautiful as if i never see it

and remind me that ambition is sexy

i know

i know any man would be lucky to be with someone who shines as bright as me

capable of conversation, challenge, and creation

i’m one of a kind

in this, i don’t need validation

in fact, there’s only one place where i’m lacking

a space you can’t comfort me

a void you can’t fill

i remain afraid that despite all i have to offer…

i belong to no one
