Gasp

In and out, in and out. 
Of love and affection. 
What's truer than that. 
What's truer, 
the abuse or caress?
One feeling lovelier than the other but ending equally as tragic. 

Let go of the feeling that you need to be better in order to better someone, 
Because most of the time they don't want to be bettered. 
You end up needing to be bettered because you never looked at yourself and said "I'm beautiful."
