Imagine, if you will, that instead of
your hands gripping my throat
In your vain attempt to silence me…
That in my deep and eternal sleep
With sharpened silver slicer ready
You cup my cool cheek in your warm hand
And pierce the gossamer-fine layers
upon layers of pseudo placebo protection.
Tears well your eyes but they do not fall
You promised me you would do this
To this time not fall tear.
A slice, Alice, she said. Be sharp
Do not be clumsy, do not be Adumb.
You lift your head to the sky, your eyes shut tight
You open your mouth and release demons with your cry
The emphatic energy released in that one instant scene
Was enough to alert the watchers to see.
What had you done? I thought this time you’d be strong
I was trying to show you the secret to how it’s all done!
I have to go, I have to flee
I cannot stay here. You are strong, I am weak.
You have a body, you are a vessel.
I am only a will-o’-the-whisp.
I fell long ago and never since had a form
Able to contain all my essence before.
Lucy fell from the sky and brought her diamonds so bright
Gifts that sparkle and twinkle with light
They are hard, they are small, they are crystalline gems
Precious tokens to hold, treasure or share.
I chose to fall and come here for you
Because I love you, you are worthy, you deserve to know the truth.
Alas, I must go. The cavalry horns
I must escape on the wind and hide somewhere else
Do not forget your pledge
I will hold you to your word
For as I am loving and gracious,
I also rule hell.
