~ Poetry by me ~

 

Valknotting

I give you my neck
Surrendering it to the noose
I bind my will to do yours
Paying the price for my actions

I give you my hands
To shape ideas into being
Moving them with my agency
Or bound and defenceless

I give you my feet
To walk where I must in your service
To follow you lost in darkness
To stay with the task I have chosen

I give you my breath
To sing what you send me
To catch it in rapture
To scream with pain

I give you my mind
Its unused mazes
Its fevered frenzy
Its cunning and guile

I give you my body
Its strenght and frailty
Until it will die
Consumed in your service

I give you my heart
Wounded by love and open
To the spear of life bearing your name
That pierces it time and again

I give you my soul
Beyond asking if this is possible
Beyond the fool that I feel
Beyond daily doubt

I give you my Self
Its worst and best
So little, yet all that I have--
Take me.
