The Difference

In love’s past
I spent more
Time
Trying to convince
Myself
To stay.
In your past
I spent
Every day
Trying to convince
Myself
I could find a
Reason not
To.
I tried to
Make
Myself fit with
Them.
The difference
With you is,
Although I felt
Like I fit with you
It never seemed
The case for you.
I would never
Ask you
To conform
To fit me.
I’ve never been sure
Of who I am
Until now
Or what I really need
So I understand
Feeling
Lost
Confused
Inside out
Upside down
Twisted
And wrung out.
I get it.
I see.
I have
Bent to fit myself
Into strangers
Pockets
So many times
I felt secure in yours
But if my weight
Was too hard
To carry
Then I get it
I see.
It makes a difference
To me.
