sacrifice

I loved you
but I sacrificed my dreams
my goals
my desires
and my aspirations
for you

I lost me

I lost my sense of self
you chased your dreams
and I waited
I followed you
yet it wasn’t a two way street
I was your shadow
the one you’d sleep beside at night
the one you expected to always be there
and I knew I needed more

I loved you
but I needed me
I needed to follow my dreams too
I walked away without a direction
without a purpose
and how I’ve found so much more than I expected
