Until Taking is Done

You hurt me …
It seemed like forever …
In that endless winter of our discontent …

Deafening silence …
With no end even hoped for …

Where did you go …
Why did you go …
I would ask and ask …
But I always knew …

It wasn’t even you so much that needed satisfaction was it …
Redemption from those ills of commission and omission …
Both real and imagined …
Weighing on my soul …

Guilt is all I’ve ever known …
And I never even knew what for …
But still I’ve been sorry …
Like a white heat burning …
And you let me say it …
Live it …
Atone for it all …

Tears running until there were no more left to come …

Always present …
Always watching …
Always there and never gone …

Always with me …
Always focused …
Still smiling at the end …

In suffering for you I cleansed every wound …
And found a cleaner heart …
Still beneath that rubble …
Still beating strong …

Take just this little bit more love …
Each edge my promise kept …
So to see the end of fear …

Take just this little bit more love …
Take some then more then all …
Until taking is done …

Take just this little bit more love …
And see nothing left but joy …
