“The Promise” by Jerelyn Adviento


we look for love in the most uncaring of places
expectations sought and never reciprocated
and yet its but human nature to search for it
discontent quite not getting enough of it

sitting in front of a computer, with so many things to do
dare i take a breather, and sense
that i am love beyond words
but i don't realize it, never quite content


love in its simplest form, is love pure
thank you for giving it to me
thank you for being patient,
that i'll get to learn it somehow

you'll see, i will.
i will
