hold your own hand. fix your own cup of coffee. tuck your own body into bed. become your own best friend and walk aside yourself down that sidewalk. suggest music to yourself. find a home under that skin. find shelter between those aching bones. place bandaides on yourself and calm yourself down. pour your own glass of wine. fall for yourself. let yourself break your own heart. let yourself break into something new. walk away from yourself. leave that shell of a body to recollect itself in that tiny apartment. love yourself. then hate yourself. grow in yourself. adore your foreign skin and fragile vessel. because you’re the only one. just yourself and no one else.
