Flagellation

I would hurt myself for you Tear my body clean in two I know it's not what you would want But I am selfish in my love I'd let the clouds under my skin until I'm dark and cold within Bare my chest, hacked wide open lay my heart on stormy oceans My shattered skull the seagulls' cave inside, my loved for you engraved and should my blood become the sea the tides would change and follow thee As my soul joins with the wind You'd see your name if you squint as a fleeting indication of my undying dedication It doesn't matter what you want I want you happy, even if I'm not I'd hurt myself to spare you pain I love you. That will never change
