Eligible for love

My pain wasn’t profound
I did not need any healing
because when it was compared to the pain of someone else
it wasn’t a big thing
so every time my heart broke
my pain was marginalised
I was told I don’t need to be loved for it to cure
that it was not a tide
Busy in the comparison of my pain
they failed to notice the ruptures
and they said I wasn’t eligible
I wasn’t eligible for love.
