I am not friendship material

I will hurt you

I am not relationship material

I will leave you defeated

I am not material

For anything

But maybe I don’t have to be

Maybe I don’t want to be


Lace, or velvet

Who says I only can be one kind?

Let me be lavet

I will be your highest love

And your biggest regret

If I let you in,

I will show you my all

And I will show you my true self

To them I am lace

To others I am just one rare fabric

To me, I am it all

I am it all, and I am nothing

I am no material

& I am everything


-this poem I wrote a while ago and since I’ve started this account I thought: “why not share, besides books written by others, something of myself?” So, here it is, hope you like it & hopefully you feel something while reading it and if you want, let me know what you think!
