Obsessive Compulsive Self-Love

I am before you spinning new cloth of my heart
Knowing full well I always restart when it gets hard
Itís not that I donít hold myself in high regard
But my skin burns when I ignore the obsession underneath

It sears and bites
Like ants of fire
Convincing me Iíll be in dire straights
If I donít torch what was

So here I stack stones of what now is
The Aegis I have become
For those who understand this

It will not defeat me
This new beginning
Is merely a treaty

A promise to stay
as long as you need me
And be my best self
I think heís lovely

And should you disagree
I am no longer in need
Proving my worth
Is not my responsibility

I am here for me
and for you
Loving from a place of abundance
Standing strong in my truth

Stand with me, wonít you?
