I will not love you the same way I love me

I will not love you the same way I love me

but I will love you gently

openly lovingly swingingly

I will not guide you the way I guide myself

through trees and forests and across sticky pine branches

but I will build you a Church in the wild

and let you come down from your throne and settle at my altar

I will not open up to you with the might of the sky

but I might love you so much that my breath’s on fire when you’re breathing

and my arms feel lost because they’re no longer holding you

I will not forgive you like I forgive myself

but I will make room for our flowers to grow, and I will love you anyhow

I will not attempt to love you the same way I love myself, its a different kind of loving.

for each day is new, and I know not what the weather will be,

but I have in mind with the poise of an elegant swan the type of life I will lead-

only I can control it.

I will love you the way I love,

openly freely without fault without guilt and with only pleasure in mind.

I loved me first
