Fight

I promised not
to push
not to do
what I
always do.
I’m being
respectful, instead.
But I push back
against the idea
of passively waiting
for the death
of my love.
I fight to
sustain it
nourish it
alone,
not lonely.
I will keep my faith
and continue to fight,
if only because
it’s a blessing
that I still can,
and that
I still care.
