Love

I will not

I will not

Kiss you when my lips drip

With an acquired disease

Touch you with soiled fingertips

However much you plead

Smear your body with my grease

To ease your troubled sleep

I will not

Bring you such bitter sweet relief

I will not

Love you with the open fist

That slams against the wall

Wear the mask of utter bliss

When you curl up small

Use my strength as a defence

Against your innocence

I will not

Seed my love in a life of discontent

I will not

Confuse my love

I will not

Refuse my love

I will not

Abuse my love

For my love's

Complete

Love
