Poetry

It included you

There are few people on this planet 

Who I'll always save

I'd pay the ransom

I'd donate my kidney 

I'd pray...

...till my forehead bled and my knees screamed 

 

There are very few

and it included you. 

 

Yet you throw me to the lions 

You leave me to rot 

You watch me drown

 

because somehow

I've never been worth saving 

And yet I'd always save you. 

 

       - Twice. 

 

 

B.B. John
