The Forever Friend

This is something old:

He said he’s just
a plutonic friend one minute
and the next he wants to be
a friend with weekly benefits
because that’s the best
he’s willing to give you
no matter how much he dare try
to convince you he loves you deeply.

He’s told you he loved you
countless times but to show
how much, he refuses to sacrifice.

You are attached to him.
You are insecure.
You do not know your worth.
Because you love him,
you are wiling to accept whatever
he’s willing to give you no matter
how you feel about “googly eye” love.

The truth is you love him
and you always will
so you put up with
his breadcrumbs love.
