Freely Conceited

I like to imagine that there is

an easier way to go about this.

But it’s a lie.

Maybe I’m in love with the idea that I can be

saved. I don’t believe

in knights in shining armor.  I can’t shake

the idea that maybe someone out there is falling in love

with me—

and isn’t that just a bit conceited?

But the thing is, it helps me fall in love with myself,

which probably sounds worse.

If someone else is secretly pining after me, then why

can’t I flirt with my beauty,

find my flaws adorable and be embarrassed

by praising my own achievements?

I wonder if maybe that’s the way it’s supposed to be.

Loving yourself, and setting all the amazing light

inside us
