Sometimes I Feel Like Maybe You Taught Me The Wrong Kind Of Love


freestockpro.com

Maybe you taught me the wrong kind of love,
the kind of love that doesn’t exist anymore,
the kind of love that only happens once in a lifetime,
the kind of love you don’t forget.

You taught me the kind of love that communicates,
the kind of love that doesn’t leave messages ignored
or questions unanswered.
The kind of love that’s clear as day.

You taught me that kind of love that tries
to understand the differences,
and solve the problems.
The kind of love that doesn’t know how to give up.

You taught me the kind of love that waits,
the kind of love that stays when things get rough,
the kind of love that doesn’t get tempted easily,
the kind of love that doesn’t change overnight.

You taught me the kind of love that commits,
the kind of love that shows up,
the kind of love that stands still,
the kind of love that doesn’t leave.

You taught me the kind of love that reassures,
the kind of love that doesn’t break promises
the kind of love that doesn’t break hearts
the kind of love that makes the world a better place.

And ever since then, I can’t find another love like yours
I can’t find another you.
I can’t find someone who gets it.
I can’t find someone who knows how to love.

I thought that this kind of love was universal
but the more I fall for people,
the more I realize that it was just you —
that no one knows how to love anymore.

But I keep looking for the love you opened my eyes to,
the kind of love that heals.
Because this new kind of love is blind,
and it’s making me sick. TC mark

This Book Will Help You Let Go

“They think you’re mine and I’m yours. They think there’s a love story going on behind closed doors. They think it’s only a matter of time before someone tells them the truth they’ve been waiting to hear.

We roll our eyes when they joke about us being an item; we laugh at how ridiculous they’re being. But deep inside, I’m crying. I’m crying because what you’re taking as a joke is what I wish could be real.”

IF YOU REGRET LEAVING WORDS UNSAID.
IF YOU WANT TO FORGIVE AND MOVE ON.
IF YOU WANT TO HEAL.

Hi! Here’s Some Amazing Poetry For You

“I hope your learn how to love yourself the way you love others — unconditionally and without hesitation; deeply, and from the softest parts of who you are. Because isn’t it a shame, that we are so quick to forgive the humanness in someone else’s soul, but we often forget to forgive ourselves. Isn’t it a shame, that we fight for others, we believe in them with such intensity, and such hope, but we often forget to fight for ourselves.” — Bianca Sparacino ✨

“Seeds Planted in Concrete is a very empowering read. It reminds you that you should love yourself first before anyone else.” — Alyssa
