Just For You

My dear:

You ask me to call you

By your nickname,

By the "cute" three letters,

The easy one-syllable

You ask everyone to use

So “time’s not wasted”.

But darling, do you not realize

That I would, just for you,

Bring myself three breaths

Closer to death

Every time your name

Escapes my lips?

And that's alright for me -

Really, I’d gladly do it -

Because I'd rather die

Knowing I gave you my all,

Than live a few precious seconds longer,

Hollow with regret

Over the breaths I saved

For no one at all.

@Demonslayer I LOVE THIS!!! It's such a great idea, short and sweet. Ties up very nicely!
