Selfish Love

A relationship extended beyond its expiration date
because they lacked the courage to leave,
to walk away from that which was unfulfilling.
Compromising contentment and peace for convenience
and familiarity,
because they invested so much time.
Never mind the instability,
the pain inflicted upon one another.

What was thought to be “love,”
was only selfishness.
Then you ask yourself,
did you live a lie?
After all the time wasted on arguments never resolved,
finally, you realize it’s okay to leave.
It’s okay to put yourself first.
