at first it gives and through the night it gives and gives some more
and finally you start to wonder if it’s keeping score
for how much it can give away against what it receives
maybe trying to achieve the highest rank before it leaves?
it starts to get tired
it starts to get sick
it’s going to need some help from somewhere else real quick
you try to feed it love but it won’t drink a single drop
you give it time and care and blood and bones and never stop
you give and give and through the night you give and give some more
and finally you realize that you are keeping score
for how much you can give away against what you receive
you’ll be fine as long as it’s not less than nothing when you leave.
