Second First Date

Santa Monica.
Sitting on a swing
The sun sets

A spiral staircase
Delivered me

Prom girls
Run to the sea.

Big boys
Ride bikes
Proud palms
And the sea’s frothy
Fingers play the shore.

I have decided to start
dating myself again.
We broke up a few times
over the years and
I have been fighting to
rebuild trust.
I think, finally, I am
going to give myself another

I haven’t always been good
to myself and I haven’t listened

I have not cared to meet my
own needs, and God knows
I have betrayed myself countless times.

I have put myself in danger, emotionally and
I have put myself in the wrong hands
and I have wasted many of my gifts.
But I love myself after all and have
worked hard to win myself back.


I am going to date myself.
This time I am going to get it right
for this girl.
Putting me first.
Giving me everything I want.
And meeting all of my needs.
And this time, in every
thing and every way and
Nothin but the best

I don’t think it will be a long
I think a full commitment is
on the horizon.
I’ll keep you posted.
