Well Liked, Half Loved


I'm well liked, that much I know
But how much love do they show
I love when people hang with me
Glad I'm someone they enjoy to see
But what if I desired more
What if words are what I adore
Being there is always good
And that shows love as it should
But I want to hear with my own ears
I want compliments from my peers
I don't wants words to boost my pride
Just want to know that love doesn't hide
When self doubt comes to my door
And shakes me to my very core
It'd be nice to hear that they see
See who I am and love me for me
I want to know what they think
I need words before I sink
Don't suck up and please don't lie
But please, oh please, comfort me before I cry

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
