you’re not single because you didn’t forward that chain letter,
because your replies were too quick
because you missed one of his
because you said the wrong thing.

you’re not single because
your tits are too small or
her ass looks better in those pants or
you have a stomach or
“men want women with curves.”

you’re not single because you’re messy
you’re not single because you’re not ladylike enough
because you don’t fit in
because you’re too ugly
because you’re too this, you’re not enough of that.

you’re not single because who would date somebody like you?

you’re not single because you fall in love too easily,
or because you don’t open up enough.
you are not single because your heart is too big
or too small.

relationships are not gained through meticulousness,
at how precisely your words land
and how perfect your face is when you laugh.

you are not single because it’s what you deserve.

you are single because
you are single.
psychologists warn us not to find patterns,
not to make connections
when there are none to be found because

there is no man in the moon, the virgin mary’s face
did not spring up on a grilled cheese sandwich, and
you are not single because of anything you have
or haven’t done.

you are single
because you are single

and

don’t let them tell you
that it’s not okay.

don’t let them tell you
that you cannot be a force of nature
when you have no one’s hand to hold.

don’t ever let them tell you that, alone,
you cannot still
burn.
Epilogue: I love you all. :heart:

I wish i had found this poem sooner. it's sad that the world always feel the the need to force us to be with someone anyone
without ever knowing that being with someone or anyone does not guarantee happiness.

The belief that we can't function alone - it's another form of putting people down.

Hey ! Don't wait for people to ask you out :la: If you like someone, go ahead and try. Sometimes, guys can be flattered, or even be impressed. Just be subtil, and everything will be good :heart:

Have a nice day !
