I Love Myself More Than Anything Else

I love myself more than anything else
As no other things have ever
endured so much
and done anything more
to satisfy
my lust

all the way
twenty four by seven
she spins like a top
in ups and downs
in all hardships
just to gain
my trust.

Without her hard work
I dare not to fulfill
any of my dreams
or desires
so she takes her out
to earn me
all my gratification

In return
I give her nothing
Except pain and suffering
yet she keeps me serving
It could not be anything
But a love, deep and platonic

How can I love anything else
more than myself?

    I was thinking about a muse as I read this. You must have a very active one to be so prolific! As for your question, I don't think you really can...we must love ourselves first to be worthy of others' love or to love others. (Report) Reply

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
