What are you willing to give for the one you love?
I give you my infatuation, I give you my avidity
For whenever you want something to live
I give you my susurrations, I give you my calidity
For whenever you want something to perceive

What are you willing to do for the one you love?
For him, I’d chisel a blueprint onto my bones
So my anatomy can be that place which he can call home

A little late but this is a piece in respects to the fallen.
With every storm, with every rage
We managed to simulate a warlike stage
Revealing your tyranny
Exposing my vulnerability
The repetition of the vicious destruction
Always reinstates the pain
And the nightmares never end
Because I always dream a different ending
I would have died for you
Sacrifice myself for you
Lead the line to
make sure nothing touches you
But a soldier falls only
For what’s worth falling for
And you are not that
So I retreat
But not in defeat
So don’t overthink this behest
It’s simply in my side’s best interest

And seriously, a man who doesn’t give you the world doesn’t deserve you to be willing to give up yours for him.
