For Him, I’d Chisel My Bones

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

Not Worth My Sacrifice

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.
