Genuine

Forever

All my life I have been lied to,
"You'll find the one" they say,
but why is it that he is never here to stay.
Relationships are hard to come by
because you are saving yourself for "the lucky guy,"
but who is to say he is the lucky one
what if he is only in it for fun.

And when you finally have the man of your dreams
your whole reality seems
perfect
bright
out of a fairytale.
Until that one night
that he thinks that he was right.
He takes the hand that he once held you with
and 
CRACK
across the face. 

Love should not be like that.
It should be the little things
like the good morning text messages
that let you know you were on his mind.
The random instagram post
showing how proud he is to have you.
The bag of popcorn he brings
because he knows its your favorite.
The 5 minute hugs
when he doesn't want you to leave.

Love is about:
Trust
Understanding
Compassion
Patience
Respect
Desire

Love is Forever.
