Sacrifice of Love Pictures, Images and Photos

Offered up on the altar
of eligible, single men
begging to be saved,
I bare my heart
hoping for

by my own
need to be loved,
becoming a willing,
living, breathing sacrifice
I stop struggling and succumb

Parading by, with open stares
all with their own agendas,
my tormentors pass
their judgments,
clearly upon
each face:

too tall
too curvy
too this, too that,
not nearly needy enough
to fulfill their masculine egos
I seem condemned to live alone

Is there not a rescuer out there
prepared to do battle,
to prove themselves
worthy of one who
loves without

not only her
heart and body
but her soul, her spirit
transcending the physical,
breaking the bonds of earth?

Oh, my Champion…please, come forth!
