Gifting Me the World #freeverse #poetry

I love myself so hard I gave myself the world.

Do you know what that means?

I looked at the heaven and hell in the world and in me in every reflection. I could not escape it and so I ran towards everything I feared. And I said take me but when you take me, you take you.

And then I stood alone.

I faced my demons so I could learn about them and with that knowledge reduce the suffering that they brought us.

I dedicated my pain to healing on some balcony in a cold California.

I ran in the dark. I danced down the streets. I cried in the shade of a dumpster.

But I could not outrun myself. My body turned on me and would not let me rest until I surrendered to my own perfection.
