Self Centered

tracks wc

Self centered

you offer…conveniently;

…..when it suits you

……….not when needed by another.

Self Centered

you care…conditionally;

…..when you need things in return

……….yet detached and cold otherwise.

Self centered;

you give…occasionally

…..when the planets align perhaps

……….withholding what others need most.

Self centered;

you love…reluctantly

…..when it keeps someone near

……….withdrawing often and painfully.

Self centered;

you are…so certain

…..when showing smugness clearly

……….believing that you have nothing to lose.
