Love doesn’t demand that you sacrifice
give ultimatums or that you conform or merge
You accept them for who they are with all of their so-called “faults” you see
embracing the whole and not merely selective sum of their parts
Love doesn’t ask you to give up your friends, hobbies, your favourite TV programmes, your career
“You complete me”
As romantic as it sounds, resentment sets in as your soul cries out
to be true to yourself, to honour your hopes dreams, desires.
The walls resurrect between you and your “other half”
as you need as opposed to want
as you chip away at yourself slowly in the name of love
and give up pieces of yourself as opposed to giving of yourself.
Love doesn’t ask to sacrifice anything, but simply to be all that is...you
