sacrifice

sacrifice

We say that we would give
it all for love. Do we really know
what we are asking for?

Love will demand for you to give it all
every jot and every tittle
every last hope to which you cling.

And after it has asked for this
it will ask again for more, reaching
down for those hopes laying hidden.

Love will gut them from your heart,
chill that faint glowing ember, dash
the last lingering expectation.

Love will ask for even those.
