I gave away my lungs 
So I could know what it feels like to have breath taken
I removed my heart so I could
Let the beats skip
Playing hopscotch within my chest
Rushing rocks throughout my atria
Painting my veins with chalk
When you asked
I loaned you my bones
Because then my knees would always be weak
I let them take my tongue
To leave me speechless
I've been told romance kills slowly
The quietest of murders
But for a donor like me
It’s rather quick
I evaporated into nothingness
A sack of skin and empty organs
I did not fall and break
I stood by and let you take everything

Until there was no love left for myself.
