The Sacrifices

Poem #10

I have insecurities

That will not leave

Each passing breath

You give your life

To better mine.

My heart sinks deeper

While you jump off

Swimming in depths

To bring me back

To life.

As my head swims with worry

You filter out the pain

Taking it in yourself

So that I can have

A moment of bliss.

Without you, I sink

You risk everything

Love me earnestly

Showing me that

I have a place to fall.

I hope that I do the same

Help you in your need

Our relationship proves

That we never lose

When we are together.
