Self-love allows unconditional love.

Love me like so, and I’ll love you.
Make me complete; then I’ll be true.
Shortcomings behind, bring untroubled mind.
Keep ticking each box on my chart.
But no.

I see all of me, caressing the scars.
Make time for my pain, not push it afar.
No longer blind, to my own self kind,
Accepting the whole and all parts.
And so.

In wonder uncloaked, appear to me.
More beautiful still, without guarantee.
The closure was mine, to love divine,
Now you can be you in my heart.
