To whip Love’s heart

Lovers take back power
Going off with another

Vicious cuts
The desperate make
To set fire to worlds
Not going their way

Persist in flesh
And aren’t erased
By changes in mood
And sentimental plays

Eroticism of darkness
Fucking in anger
Wrestling like beggars
Over a bent copper coin
And a single tear

To whip Love’s heart
In spite
Is to sell your soul
And end your life
