All's fair

I will. not. bow.
†  
not even when slip knot words †
gather softly 'round my throat †
challenging everything - †
[yeah]most things I never thought. †
he blessed me with perspective. †
†  
but I will not surrender †
to a petticoat rustler, a hustler †
with tender will †
brain cocked on a choosy hammer †
chipping on with a bitch of a backfire †
[step lightly, my Darling †
this is love, don't you know] †
†  
I will not yield/give/sigh †
to impressions †
of rough hands †
that settle sweet dream delusions †
rocking me too lightly †
till I'm fierce †
feral to the last fight †
where conquerors go to die †
I... †
†  
purify - †
this sidewinder slithers †
under meanings and over smiles †
and will haunt †
every †
written †
word †
every time they slay. †
†  
but love be damned †
and words be rain upon my face. †
†  
I will. not. bow.
