Miss Not Enough.

​Wide eyes

Open heart

Curious fingers

Shying away from

A first love

Destined to fall

Like every other

Miss Not Enough.
A heart, all trusting

Still ready 

All eager 

All willing

To fall again

Watching with 

The alien ache

Of rejection

As he walked away

Miss Halfway.
Walls piling

Brick upon bitter

Brick, lining up

Barricading, fortifying

Yet with every word

They peeled away

Like dried glue

On soft fingertips

A falling heart

Always gets hurt

By turning backs

And hollow promises

Still not learning

To let go

Still forgiving 

In an endless cycle

Of regret

Miss Incognito.
Wounds heal

And skin grows

Over scarring cuts

For everything mends

To fill in

Gaps created by

A hungry past

Hope still blooms

And clings stubbornly

To ragged hearts

Making you believe

That this time

Sometime, you will

Finally be

Miss Enough.
-Gautami.
