The angel smote down,
a man with fire,
and the man lying on the ground
His soul in fragments.
Fire licked around the tendrils of his soul
Save me he cried
pouring out his soul before the angel.
To save you by fire
is safer than to expose you to ice
In your condition
Could you have hoped for any
more or less.
When the fire had consumed the man’s soul
It reunited into one whole
and he cried out blessings to the angel
You have made me whole, where I was not
But I curse you, for I was going
to follow the broken fragments of my soul home.
You have robbed me of the opportunity to do so.
Build a bridge but climb no higher
the angel said.
Where you head, men are lost
Knights are consumed by loss
and warriors never see the light again.
You lie the man said
there is always light.
But what good is light, the angel said.
If you cannot see it.
The sun falls in fragments through the window.
And my heart is in fragments inside me.
The light continues to shine at the window.
And the inner light inside me
shines through like a window.
The light that holds my heart together
is leaving me
for the eastern shore.
Where beings have left before me
never to return.
The sound of a song on a distinct flute
plays to harm me.
I cannot be blind,
but all i can do is feel.
You ask me what the justice of love is
and it is but a song
that plays through the dark night.
What is love lost?
But a child lost.
I have no answers
but I do not seek the beginning of answers anymore.
I hear the voices of the many dead
who sigh out at me.
But i grip my face in my hands
in a place no one can see.
There is a place beyond heaven and hell
Where you still exist to me.
Over and over and over.
It is home
and it is true.
Through the many guises
of who you used to be,
I pretend I am where you still are,
but i have fallen without ceremony.
An instinct for pain tames me.
It is the only thing that can tame me.
Where my trust fails,
A memory of you holds me together.
It is the only thing that holds me
from past to future.
And in this sadness I bow down
Before great angels
who knew what love can do
and still they yield
to a higher power.
And even if you did not love me
What small part of me you did love
I commit to a higher power.
because your touch redeems me.
the wind blows through my hair
i see everything
the love in my heart
never fails in this life
or the next.
the ground caves
the sun goes down
but i remain.
