Love, I have nearly died for you
Begged and cried for you
Crawled, screamed and gone under guise for you
Not accepted parts of myself for you
Have been all of me in front of you
Left reality and sanity behind because of you
Plunged into the trenches blinded and crippled to soldier for you
Ate myself into a balloon state because of you– large on the outside, empty so empty inside
Sang hallelujah because of you while running through deserted streets
Worn you proudly like this me
made of glittering gold
Lusted for you when all I could handle was lust
Have come for you. Again and again.
Have tried so hard for you
Until I didn’t even know what I was on trial for
Wondered alone and with friends your worth in my weight
Never have ran out of words about you
Give you up.
Love elephant and want to go steady?
