unk, if this is poetry, not a note to your mom. it's about self-concept and projection and just wishing that that one would love you, when it was love and not him, but you couldn't know that because loneliness is love to and you had to at least love yourself a little to survive at all. man, people really don't know about love on this site, just about getting sum.
