I’d sacrifice my own happiness,

to see you smile and laugh.

It’s worth more than words.

I’d make myself miserable,

if it kept you from feeling worthless.


You say I should say something,

if I’m not content.

Every time I tried to speak,

you’d strangle me,

till I choked on the letters.


I’ll be your second choice.

Your punching bag,

and your pick-me-up.

Your happiness is mine.

Even if I don’t feel a thing.

I’m lying to you,

which is a crime.

I’m lying to myself,

which is  a murder.


I’m cannibalistic, eat my own heart.

Watch as you take me apart.

I want you to be happy.

I’d ruin myself,

to see you smile.

And I’d convince myself,

that you are the one,

who’ll make me happy.


For your happiness,

is mine.

I give it all,

for you to be happy,

I’d lose it all,

to be happy.

    Love, or maybe obsession, can make us do crazy things in a bad kinda way. Love can also be the thing that makes the world go around. There are some grand lines in your verse, some disturbing stuff and some stuff that’s sad. Nice write!
