What if it treated you how I treated my friends?
Or my husband?
Or my co-workers?
What if I gave you equal weight in my heart?
Like I do for the ones I hold dear...
Dear me, it feels like a terrible thing to do - this equilibrium.
It throws me off course.
Maybe that’s as it should be.
I’ve always found balance after falling.
Perhaps I should fall for myself.
I’ve never tried it.
What would I say to me, for instance,
To woo myself?
How could I be my valentine?
Would I get myself flowers?
Set up a fancy meal?
Surprise myself with chocolates?
Is that what I would do?
Or would I cuddle up next to me and tell me I was beautiful?
Or would I put my hand on my leg and let myself know it would be ok?
Would I kiss myself and exclaim my love?
Would I give myself time, space, and energy?
Dear, dear me - it seems like a lovely thing to do.
