Sacrifice

Understand there is no meaning to this word

its not something you can understand

sacrifice is something you have to do

bending reality and suffering though it

skewing and breaking the image you have

and tiny little shards that poke and stab

and when you bleed it overflows

and you have to stretch your arms wide

to catch the moment and throw it back

just so you can survive what

the universe has made

And you know you see a perfect miracle

and the spot just for you has been empty

and in this new picture you feel this pain

as the sun shines brightly over there

in that heaven you almost had

but instead you sit in hell

where your heart and your demons

have bade you to come and dwell

and there’s an equal balance

a razor’s edge that slices you in two

when the thread gets pulled and you feel a tug

and you’re sewed up a jagged ragged mess

and so you suffer with this pride that you have

done what is right and you die inside because

you even had to make this sacrifice.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
