Reckoning of Soul

I remember
all of the nights
were you told me
that surely,
you were broken;
that you could not
for the life of you
figure out why
you could not muster
any love
for me.
It has been some time
since those nights,
and I have met many people.
It breaks my heart
to tell you what I have learned,
but you must hear it.
You cannot ever hope
to love me,
or anyone,
for as long
as you hate yourself.
