connections

I never trusted myself enough 
“stop seeking and you shall find”
and I was holding onto a hope 
that was never certain –
hope that one day I’d be enough 

every person I met, 
“They might be the one” 
of if it felt wrong within me 
those words you spoke,
“you have to let love in to feel love” 

I stopped searching 
I stopped looking 
I started living
It stopped being
“oh, maybe it’s you?”
I didn’t wait around
and the people I’ve met 
I fell in love with,
connections; life long
not the forever kind of love 
but beautiful people
kind souls
gentle
