An agonising cliché

An agonising cliché

It is not a pretty cliché
Or romantic one
To say that I would be nothing without you
So many people have taken everything from me
My feet
My insides
All my love
All my dignity
But you
You have filled me with rivers of love
And oceans of shining light
If you lost the fight
If you went away
You would drain my blood in front of my eyes
Not out of greed like the others
But out of grief like no one before
You keep the rivers flowing inside of me
And that why the incredible cliché fits so well
Not out of romance
But in agony
