I love myself more

He and I stand at the top of the waterfall

Planning to jump

Once again

You go

I say with a tiny nudge

I love you

But I love myself more

I will confess

Guilty or not

To avoid your guillotine stare

But it won’t really mean a thing

You know

I love you

But I love myself more

As I stand here naked before you

Naked but fully clothed

I wonder how something so priceless

Can be worthless

At the very same time
