This time I'll walk away.

SELF-LOVE

While you were Away

I took a course on self love

At first, it was hard to look at myself at the mirror

Hard to feed myself anything but junk food or junk words

It was not easy taking a compliment

Saying good things to myself felt like swallowing nails

When adding my worth it only summed up to a dollar

There was not a day I did not question you leaving

Self love was never easy

But it was beautiful

It was empowering

For the first time I looked at the mirror and saw the Rose that I was despite the thorns

I did not see hours of crying

There was no trace of where I clip on my masks

It was bare, imperfect and beautiful

I no longer brushed my hair like I wanted it to straighten out

I no longer try to hide how wild it is with hair sprays and bobby pins

I started taking a time off

Finally I heard compliments rather than lies

I did not feel guilty talking good about myself

I posted self love quotes and genuinely meant it

Rather than hoping one day I could do it

I no longer restricted myself of happiness for the fear of loneliness that shall follow

My worth was immeasurable

I started caring for myself.

Blooming like a sunflower reaching out to the sun despite the thick clouds.

While you were away

I took a course on self love

And if you'll be back

Know that I am not who I was

I am done chasing

I am done settling for days where you like me and days where you don't

I am done staying waiting for you to make up your mind

While you were away

I took a course on self love

And if you will be back

Know that I am not who I was

I am done with "I like you's"

Sweet nothings shall mean nothing to me

I am never settling for uncertainties

Nor am I settling for half-loves

This time you love me or I'll walk away

No more negotiations,

No in-betweens

No more grey zones

While you were away

I took a course on self love

It was not easy

But it was beautiful

It was empowering.
