Expectations!

Stop chasing my demons just
Because they remind you that
Yours are normal, chase all of
Me, instead, chase my dreams
And ambitions and smiles and
Annoyances and idiosyncrasies
With me, and let me chase yours
With you, know me and accept
Me, not just at my worst, but at
My absolute best too, remember
Me not only in times when you
And I are broken, but in times when
We triumph beyond what we
Thought we could do, for I refuse
To only be a shelter to seek refuge
In, when the storms batter at you,
Because shelters are abandoned
and I don’t want you to be one
Either, no, for you’re meant to be
My home and safety, where I belong,
And I want to be that for you too.
