Validation

Tell me I’m
handsome,
beautiful,
talented,
wanted,
needed.

Tell me that
you love me, that
you only want to be near me, that
you can’t live without me, that
I’m yours, and
no one else’s.

Tell me you’ll be there
for me, for
yourself, for
us.

Tell me I’m
worth it, I’m
not giving up, I’m
not alone in this.
Lie to me, if
you have to.

  1. I love this. It’s so hard to tell someone you need them, it out your heart all out there. Your poem is kind of the same but opposite of one I wrote today. I am not one to plug my work on another’s blog, but if you want to check it out. I’d like to see what you think.
