Legacy’s Lash (Valkyrie)
Amid life’s errant metamorphosis, I extend my lash,
Practising the bladed whip’s gait, I distend my lash.
You watch, titivated and stirred, by your warrior,
Wedged stance and motivated, you commend my lash.
Behind my bright eyes I plot your gruesome downfall,
All you witness is an artist’s kata, as I tend my lash.
Distracting you, my primary task, misdirected magician,
My intentions impervious, as I comprehend my lash.
Fidelity offered and devotion bequeathed, I ascend,
Depending on you as you fend for me, I transcend my lash.
