Loved

I went around looking, because I could tell.
I looked and even told people, as I stood amazed:
“You are loved?!”
They wondered; I wondered;
Two separate entities.
I nailed my notes to the floor
With a bold gigantic spike,
And I wondered what being loved was like.
There went another…another loved person!
I was mystified, and I cooked,
Staring into the bubbling grease.
My mirror brought out the monster,
That unloveable thing.
I tried to give love
And a scream chilled my bones.
Startled I ran away,
And the wind tore my hair around.
I went to bed, the icy blankets
Wrapped tightly about me;
I could not help but wonder,
If someone could ever love me.
