Break

My heart because you can catch
The teardrops and shards flecked with blood

Burn

My soul so you may caress
The smouldering ash with callused hands

Tarnish

My hope so I may learn
The essence of human frailty

Split

My skin, exposing emotion and raw compulsion
Beating and tumbling restlessly beneath flesh

Leave

Me to extract goodness from the world
And replace my fickle demeanour with its impurity
