No Covenant

broken covenant

I am the fuller in a blade
a gouge of absent steel

I make you lighter for the parry
and quicker off the heel

I’m something that is missing
but is there to bring you gain

a flaw that sees you winning
and your enemies the slain

Though I’ll never know a lover
I’ll reap the victors spoil

and my days of peace I’ll forfeit
for the balance of my toil
