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 you’ll never know a lover
you’ll reap the victors spoil

and your days of peace be forfeit
for the balance of your toil
