Untitled 2 - Poem by Christopher Ridgeway

You know I would give you anything short of up
Yet that's exactly what you have asked for
So back I sit pretending to do just that
It’s what you wanted, so reluctantly I obey
Now we play a game, I watch myself with astonishment
As I participate, telling myself it's ok
All the while knowing it isn't enough
But it's what you want, so it's what I'll give you.
