Unicorn

I was told that the love I was looking for 

Doesn’t exist

The unconditional kind

The love that accepts you and appreciates you and makes your toes curl with delight

I was told love like that doesn’t exist

Like a unicorn

It’s a myth

I was told that love like that

Is too much to ask for

It’s too much to listen to me

Impossible to understand me

Too burdensome to love me

I’m complicated 

Confusing

I refused to accept it

And because I believed 

In unconditional love

I kept searching for it

Like a treasure

I believed it was out there

I wasn’t going to stop until I found it

And the closer I got to it

The more I was willing to do to make it mine

Whatever it takes

I’m willing to do

Because you don’t find a magic mindreading miraculous unicorn every day 

And if you let it go, you just might spend the rest of your life asking for it to come again
