covenant

you remind me  
of beauty -
in me, where I saw only scars,
where I saw only wounds,
and ugly battlefields.
 
i was at war,
with myself;
and you
were my peace treaty.
 
disarmed me,
open armed.
traced my scars,
with your tongue.
prised open
the portcullis
of my defences,
with love.
 
i am
conquered.
