masters and reapers

my loyalty is a double-edged sword
unsheathed, i’d rather pierce myself than
let you bleed, even if i realize that
what you want doesn’t align with
what i need, because in my pain,
i know you and i will be freed – knowing you
had both ends of necessity and frivolity in life –
because i realize less is more, and with more things
comes more strife, i’d rather be
the master than the reaper of the
double-edged sword
