"Like my other poems, this piece was written on the spot. As for the inspiration and meaning behind my piece, I think a lot and feel strongly about love. I've never experienced romance or been in a relationship, so I tend to be in my head quite a bit and feel lonely from time to time. It makes me wonder whether or not I have a soulmate, and if that soulmate is myself. Self-love comes before loving another person, as they say."
