“Darling, don’t ever think I wouldn’t do
anything I could to save you.”
Darling, don’t ever think I wouldn’t do anything I could to save you. Because you are everything to me. The breath in my lungs. The blood in my veins. The thoughts in my head. You are what keep me, me. You are worth it.
You deserve to survive and be respected.
You, my body, have taken such great care of me.

You protected me
when I needed you.
Now I need to forgive you
for doing the only thing
you could: survive.
