All the Wrong People

Love was both natural
and unnatural
for her

Natural to give
yet unnatural to receive
as in she didn’t receive it
not that she wasn’t receptive

Others weren’t that giving
of it, at least to her
which was odd

Because they readily
accepted it
from her
and gave it to others

Perhaps it was
her oddness
The way her angular
failed to fit
her round body

Perhaps it wasn’t
expected in return
the way she would turn
away, embarrassed
humble, feeling
unworthy of any

Perhaps love wasn’t
really something both
given and returned

Maybe she was looking
in all the wrong

Or at least in all
the wrong
