On my Own Forever

I am my own lover, my own best friend. On my own forever.

 No man deserves me
 and I know this of course.
 What’s worse is
 each man I’ve known
 deep down
 knows 
 he’s not worthy
 either. 
  
 Grateful, but not grateful enough
 to compromise, understand me
 make it work.
 But I love anyway
 until the bitter end
 until I am persuaded finally
 I am worthy enough
 for myself.
 I am my own lover,
 my own best friend.
 On my own forever.
 That’s all I’ve ever learned
 from common man.
