POV: You Are Trying To Stay A Part Of Their Life

I’ve become a coward in love 

Devoting more time to making you smile, than enjoying anything myself

Ignoring the sea of compliments for a drop of attention from you

Treasuring our memories, as if they aren’t what haunt me

Creating avenues for us to run into one another, all just for me to see you 

Building bridges for messengers who can deliver my pain to you

Pain that you’ve now become numb too. 

I am a coward, but this is not love.
