A Poem

I don't like scary movies. I don't like going to the gym or going out for sushi. I don't like getting brunch and I don't like uncleaned bathrooms. Being teased makes me feel insecure. I like that I love too hard and too permanently. I like singing in the car at the top of my lungs. I don't like how lack of effort makes me question how much people care for me. I like that I'm overly protective and loyal towards people I care about. I don't like demanding ways and feeling I'm not good enough. I like cuddling a lot and that's not being clingy. I worry that what I say or do will upset those I care for. I like to overthink things but I'm a terrible planner. I don't like coffee. I like rolling my eyes. I like that I'm quiet. I like being prompted to have deep conversations or any conversation. I like that I respond to everything with "interesting" or "mhmm." I like that I work hard and am passionate for everything that I put myself into, even if it's something that is wasting my time. I like pickles and watching pimple popping videos. I don't like waking up to a cold shoulder, but I like coming out to fresh pancakes in the kitchen. I like being used as a pillow and being the big spoon. I like dogs AND cats. I don't like using people. I don't like when people feel like they're being used. I like making people happy,  I like making them smile. I have trouble putting my feelings into words sometimes, but that doesn't mean I don't have them. I like thoughtful gifts and favorite flowers. I like dancing and feeling at ease. I like keepsakes and have a box that they all go in.
