Do it

No Love Lost

So do it.
Tear my skin
Let it be rent and runneled
For the sake of shadows.
Don’t know who I’d prefer to win.

Just do it:
Gouge my soul
Let it be burnt and harried
Run through, bled out, discarded;
A battered begging-bowl

I knew it:
Break my heart
Let it be drawn and quartered
Railroaded; keelhauled
Unheeded – torn apart

Yet through it
Is it because you know me well?
Can’t help but be reminded
The thousand ways I love your kindness
So. I’m set to run through hell.

      Yeah? Maybe. It doesn’t *feel* wow. I guess I’m pleased my reallyreallyNOT wow reads with such punch… :/
