Bound By The Sword

a two edged sword
at my throat
slightly cutting
reminding me of
lifes deceit
and greatest lie
tempered against
the trust and belief
I have in you

sharp as sin
the mark it leaves
is yours, a name
in blood by you
named bound
for I am yours
by the two edged
sword of life

And between us
will be honesty
or the sword will
come and leave
the blood behind
pooled in silence
of broken trust
and vows.

So my love
come be bound
in blood to me
by a two edged sword
called honesty
let us live in
fullness, in exultation,
let us live our truths
for others to see
that indeed
some can live by
the sword
