Love is not a rose
        or other dainty, little flower.
Love is not a sunny day
        or the blessings of some good god’s powers.

Love is like a glance,
        unspoken lies abound.
Love is like a nod,
        malice needs no sound.

Love is like a lie,
        spoken, panting, in the dark.
Love is like a smile,
        oh so deadly, oh so sharp.

Love is like a knife
        drawn across two wrists.
Love is like a sword
        put in my guts with a twist.

Love is like death:
        dark and cold and alone.
Love is like Hell!
        Where no mercy was ever shown.
