I guess self-love becomes obsolete when we become absolutely obsessed with the dopamine being poured into our system.
Who am I when you’re my everything?
When the air I breath isn’t my lifeline
your instant gratification.
What is self-respect when the definition is blurred
and misconstrued by
your every whim and selfish need?
that spill from your mouth
self-centered and rude
but I guess
whatever makes you happy
makes me think I’m happy.
Why is it that we lose all self
when we think we’re in love with healthy?
Why do those rose-colored glasses blind us to the point where we become deaf and mute to all the pain they cause?
All in fear of being alone
But alone with ourselves.
We lose all sense of self when we forget that we should always be the priority.
We lose all self-respect when we forget our boundaries and self-worth.
Our own sanity vanishes when they do
and only returns when we finally see that we are our first love.
