THE SANCTUARY: 8. DEVOTION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Take my flesh to feed your dogs if you choose
Last Line: Or burn like a weed for your sake in the flame of hell.
Subject(s): Hearts; Love; Passion


TAKE my flesh to feed your dogs if you choose,
Water your garden-trees with my blood if you will,
Turn my heart into ashes, my dreams into dust—
Am I not yours, O Love, to cherish or kill?

Strangle my soul and fling it into the fire!
Why should my true love falter or fear or rebel?
Love, I am yours to lie in your breast like a flower,
Or burn like a weed for your sake in the flame of hell.
