my love for you

is a tragedy

because i cannot

breathe with it

and i cannot

breathe without it.

i would slit my throat

like Romeo

cry like Juliette

but instead i swallow

my fire

and let it


in my chest.

loving you hurts

because you do not know

what love means

and i am left

to live with it

eating at my veins.

your eyes are like


your arms like


and your heart

is an impenetrable wall.

i will wait by the wells

until you bring me water

to quench the thirst

you created in me

that nobody else

can feed.

love stories

are sad stories

about people

who died waiting.

    There are way too many perfect lines in this to highlight. Stunning and deeply emotive. Love it, but hate that it's the reality for so many people! Well done, Sara!
