NaPoWriMo 2016: Day 9 - Secrets XII

So the prompt was, include a phrase that makes you uncomfortable. Uncomfortable it definitely was, to the point I had tomake myself write it out. Which is why it was late but I guess at least I wrestled it out of my system.

#9: Secrets XII

I am warrior, I am weapon -
A dreadnought, heavy with artillery
Ironclad, untouchable, self-sufficient.

In the secret place of my heart
I adore you, hopelessly, angrily
A devotee bowing before Juggernaut's cart
Gladly crushed under its great wheels.

If I could forget - if the shieldmaid
Could relinquish her guard - but no.
Let me instead forget you
That you are blood and air and soul
To this body, this heart.

I am warrior. I stand alone.
