love more

I have been told
that I will always feel
like I am the person
in a relationship who loves more.
 
that I will never feel
like I am loved
by another
as much as I love.
 
that I will never be loved
the way I need,
the way I want
to be loved.

that I will always doubt
if the other person
loves me.
that I will always doubt
the love that they have for me.

because I want too much,
ask for too much,
need too much
love.

in you,
in us,
that is not true.

in you,
in us,
I am not too much.
the love that I need and want,
is not too much.

in you,
in us,
I do not doubt
your love for me.
I do not doubt
our love for each other.

in you,
in us,
I do not feel 
that I am the person who loves more.

in you,
in us,
I feel the depth,
the fullness
of your love of me,
of us.

in you,
in us,
you welcome
the expanse of my love
for you,
for us.

the love that I want
that I need,
is met and matched.
wholly,
fully,
beautifully.
