On the days I am overshadowed by an insecurity,
One of the days when I look in the mirror,
Trying to love myself when I don’t see the beauty in me,
Hold me tight in your embrace; love me a little harder.
A few days when I will try to seek comfort in a little bit of makeup.
My inner strength would be on a holiday so I would rely on this touch up.
I know that it may sound ironical to expect your love in the absence of mine
But some days, even after trying my best, I fail to feel fine.
I may not ask you because I am uncomfortable with physical touch
But if it’s from you, embrace me tightly, if it isn’t too much
For you to give and me to demand from you; feed me delicacies stored in the larder.
It may appear impossible to me so at that time, can you please love me a little harder?
