Dear Self

Dear Self,

You did it again

You let someone into your life too soon

You thought they actually wanted to get to know you

But once they started to get to know you

And all of the tragedy you have encountered and overcame

They showed their real colors

Their real desires

Weren’t you

Just to conquer another woman

& Leave you behind

Dear Self—just stay away from dating.

Or just cry for now, cause it feels so good and therapeutic

Dear Self,

It’s beautiful being alone, remember that ok?

Dear Self,

I love you.
