How does it feel to be loved?

That adoring gaze,
Kisses on the forehead,
To be asked if ate,
And cared for when I’m sick,
I wonder…
How does it feel
To be loved?

To be called dad’s princess,
Or mom’s little angel,
To find a soulmate,
To truly belong,
I wonder…
How does it feel
To be loved?

To have parents that care,
About my life too,
Just as much as they care,
About the money I earn,
I wonder…
How does it feel
To be loved?

To have a marriage built on trust,
Not a husband who lusts,
After every single woman,
He lays his eyes on,
I wonder…
How does it feel
To be loved?

To have someone who stays,
Through the good and the bad times,
And stands by my side,
As a strong pillar of hope,
I wonder…
How does it feel
To be loved?

Drained to an extent, I can’t explain;
Amidst poverty and abandonment,
I hang on to a train,
As I hang on to my life,
I wonder…
How does it feel
To be loved?

But no train can take me,
To a place, I’m loved,
‘Cause there’s nobody in the world,
To ever love me,
I wonder…
How does it feel
To be loved?

      Thank you so much!! It means a lot to me. 🙈🙈🙈🥰🥰🥰 While I tend to feel unloved sometimes, I believe it’s something that just comes and attacks our brains from time to time. I’m blessed to have a super loving and caring parents, and siblings. 🥰😍😍
      The story of the girl in my poem broke my heart. 💔 This month, I’m planning to base my works on the stories by a photojournalist. He not only captures their story but also helps them. So, I thought even if one person who reads my poems contribute to his cause, it’d help. It might not help a lot, but I wanna help. 🙈🙈🙈🙈

        I was touched by your write. Wished I could do more myself for so many but as I’m sure, all of us have limits. Keep following your passion. I’m unsure of what country you reside in, but I’m sure following journalist like this one mentioned will provide you with a greater depth pov.
        Glad to hear you have such great parents and siblings but it take an empathetic heart to write as you do. It has to be autheticand can’t be taught. A gifting curse at times, but very loving and wise. Be blessed my friend…

        🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰 I’m from Nepal. The photojournalist who’s work I’m following is from Bangladesh. I studied his works in photojournalism class and since then, I’ve been following his works. He’s such an amazing person. 😬😬😬

      Oh dear! I was writing from a pov of the girl in the picture. It’s her story. The picture was taken by a photojournalist who’s trying to improve lives of people around him. It’d be amazing if you visit his page and support him . ♥️
