Winner Takes All

I didn’t ask for her happiness,

But I had never known

The taste of my own. 

~

When she said 

If I were an ocean

Then she would love to drown..

I loved the sound. 

I have never lost myself

To love someone else.

But I know the pieces of my heart

That are recycled parts,

Sacrificed by those who thought

I was something to be wrought. 

I couldn’t mean to cause theirs to break,

When I didn’t know hearts came another way. 

~

She thought I was a project,

And I thought I was a game

I guess you can still lose when you don’t play.
