A poem I wrote when I was worried I was living for my love instead of myself, it is a reminder that I can have my life the way I want for myself and not just for him. I can love him and still hold certain selfish ways of living that bring men value.

My world, for me.

I will wipe down the counters

And put roses in the middle

Set plates for us and glasses and cutlery

I will make the food, hot

I will bring the wine

And light a fire

I dream of blankets and mugs

And soft sheets.

I will do these things for me

Because I love them.

In my space I ill cultivate

Warmth, I will bring warmth, I will embody warmth.

Because eI love it. Not for you, not because of you

But because of who I am and must be.

I am willing to share in exchange for the
freedom to harvest and control

For the space to clean and change and mess

I must have my table for eating and painting and

Converting and writing and working.

Then, I will wipe down the counters

And put roses in the middle

Set plates for us and glasses and cutlery

I will make the food, hot

I will bring the wine

And I will do it all for me

And I will make my own world
