Halves

Trembling from the sight of it

Not because of the low temperature that engulfed her

but from having his heart waver

She could not be loved in halves

She demanded only to be loved as a whole

She deserved only that much

She didn’t come this far to only be half-loved again

It hurts too much to simply be a part of something

To exist as a half and not as a whole

When you look at me

do you see what I see?

Do you see what I hoped you were seeing?
