Loki heard my name, but fears to look me in the eye.
To bluff those surrounded with their own demons leaves only truths to stare back at him
Loki Heard my name, but fears to play with me
To play with those who have been played leaves only truths to stare back at him
Loki heard my name, but fears to flyt with me
To flyt with those who breathes with the fabric of their own soul will return with bare truths
Loki heard my name but dares not turn his back.
To turn away from those stabbed countless times, know what’s needed to do the same.
Loki heard my name, but knew not to tease,
To tease the battle-wounded gives wrath from the valkyrie.
Loki may go to his daughter Hel for a box of my last breath,
Only to find out she keeps it safe from my own incursions to her domain for the same thing.
Hel fears me while holding bandages ready for my coming.
Odin warmly prepares the table
Valkyries ready their steeds,
Loki knows my name but I’m not the one afraid.
Let Odin walk beside me on every road I go. For one eye can guide more than two.
Let Thor protect me from the storms you need help with, to weather the worst.
Let Tyr give me courage when I have to fight and a shield when I need to defend.
Let Freyja guard and safely keep my soul while I heal from burnt wingtips.
Let Freyr grant me pleasure in my loving and my loving of others
Let Bragi give me eloquence in the words I say and share the spark amongst others.
Let Aedgir keep the oceans calm when I sail uncharted waters
Let Skadi guide me to see my compass through life when I need direction.
Let Vor reveal everything of worth so I have the knowledge to choose worth over face.
Let Idun remind me to bathe and hydrate, to give me the tools to be strong.
Let Heimdall watch, For every step I take is my own and together with those around me
Let Frigga weave a spell keeping me from harm and learn to live without it.
Never let Loki know my name.
