Self-ish
I am shamed
I have selfishly yearned
for that I have burned
my pain is my shame
for that, I am sorry

I am loving
like the darkest of stars
alone doesn’t mean apart
I crush what I touch
for that, I am lonely

I am lucky
from below and above
I feel and know love
for someone else, is for myself
for that, I am grateful
