Fourteen. Aftermath.

I have never not loved you

And  mangled hands tell it true.

I made those promises and those vows I intently kept

I have never not loved you

And ink-stained pages tell it true

I made that covenant thoughtfully

and that oath, I assure you I solemnly meant

I have never not loved you

And outdated memories tell it true

I called this ‘home’ devotedly

and that place I believed in

I have never not loved you

and this debauched altar tells it true

I crawled on it because He asked

I sacrificed this

but I will never

not

love

y o u.
