Can’t sleep, so I write

I have used your name as a substitute for loving myself.

It played on my lips repeatedly

A reminder that a person as wonderful as you, had the capacity to love me.


But now I shall replace your name with my own

So that I could love myself with as much conviction as I did with you.
