If You Doubt My Love

Should there ever come a day

when you would seek my warmth

against the hoard,

I would gladly provide reinforcements.


Not to dissuade you

of the notion

of the existence

of the hollowness of my chest;


but to prove to you, once and again,

that a person can function without such trivial things.


I know you have hurt

I know you've been hurt in return as penance 

I know you seek to cut the diseased limb

like it was worth nothing.


That leaden weight you abhor

is as yet, the thing that holds you afloat

to sever the strings is to let go and become one of us

do you think then you would hold no regrets?


A warning I serve

as I see you keen not to listen

the words of your elders, your monsters

in turn hold no meaning.


The end will come

when you least desire.


I promised to be there.

I'm afraid I no longer possess that strength nor power;


you have made this a day that I'd regret.
