To give away

Thank you for the gifts.
I hope I can give something back,
in return.

My feeble attempts at repaying
Turn into a battle for love.
You don’t ask for gifts,

You ask for me.
Wholly and completely,
Yet I only want to give away a part

I want to give you a piece
And you want to give me peace.
If someone can see me now,

Let them see you.

If it weren’t for second chances, we’d all be alone?
I am alone.
I’m asking for a first chance.

I want to know what that feels like.
I might even be asking for failure,
Bitter, broken failure.

If that means, I’ll feel.
Be careful what you wish for.
Be even more careful with who grants your wishes.

I don’t want to be alone.
I want to make a house a home.
And I want to build it with you.

Hear me, both of you,
Through the void.
Through the expanse of time and space.

My heart is yelling.
It is crying. It wants to know your name.
It wants to make your pain,

My pain.
