love buffet [poem]

I want your love
but I don’t need you
I think that’s an important distinction to make
because we’re taught
that finding our other half is the main course
that everything else is just a side dish
but I’m more into buffets anyway
filling up on love in all its delicious forms
no one really needs
seven different types of potato on their plate
but potatoes are awesome
and sometimes you just want to go crazy
and overload on starch
that said
I don’t need the kind of love that comes with
a racing heart and shortness of breath
but I do want it
even when my heart is already full
of warm embers and summer sunshine love
