My Own Sacrifice

How can I reach out to you
without causing any pain?
I hurt with you-
I hurt without you.

I know now that I must plunge
that double-edged dagger in my heart
and keep all that pain within me
so as to spare you both from misery.

I am my own sacrifice.
I sacrifice what lays deep inside
my heart and my soul,
to keep peace and love alive.
