Don't run back
Into his arms
Because if you do
You'll realize that
They were never there to begin with.

He doesn't have the patience
That you do.

He won't wait for you
Like you would for him.

So do yourself a B I G favor,
Love,
And
Love yourself first
And enough.
So that you never
Have to feel
Like you need to depend
On someone else
For something
That you have the right to.
For something that
You could easily have
If you could just
Take the first step
Towards
Loving yourself.
