The lamb said “Shh” and I yelled.
The lamb held out his hand
and I broke every bone there with my grip,
because I didn't believe I would be safe.
The lamb promised beautiful
and I covered myself in dirt.
the lamb said “this much”
and I drove the nails.
The lamb held me in my sleep
and I curse his name as I woke.
He loves. he loves. he loves.
I am holding his heart already.
And I am learning
that I can be sustained on his blood alone,
that I can give my own hear to him.
The lamb said “Shh” and I yelled,
so he made the world around me
louder so I could obey.
