The Ruin

the ruins

“Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.”
-James A. Baldwin

I have given you everything
because you would never accept
anything less.
I have parceled out
every piece of myself
to you as if I were serving
you meals.
Have sacrificed
And compromised
Past
The point of sanity
And still you ask for more.

Which I continue to give
because I am unable to
Say no.
I will always say yes
Until eventually
I am a ruin of my former
self.
