Sacrifice

I love you so much, but, I cannot say

the words, for you don’t belong to me

Instead I’m left with hope, and clichés

But even that is not a guarantee.

So I wait in line, with all my patience

Ignoring the imperfections of life

And the stirring emotions of my adolescence

So that no one can sharpen, their sinful knife.

I sacrifice for you, for them for everyone

My love, so you can live out your life, happily

Till the eternal breath of life leaves my dying lungs

I will linger in shadows of the dreams that cannot be

Unless, this is our path, and our destinies will meet

Again someday, perhaps when we are dead, and free.
