Bleeding out on the ground.
I did it for you.
All for you.
I know you never asked,
But I always intended to stay around.
It seems my bill is due.
The fights and the scheming
Were for a good cause.
The unsavory list of actions I took:
Every bit to prove my devotion to you.
All stories have an end.
I hoped mine would be filled
With long chapters exploring love with you,
But you’re leaving like my heartbeat.
Over before we could truly begin.
