Verses Part Two - The Blood Still Flows - Chapter Two
I knocked over the chalice, slumped forward in slumber,
just writing along and then suddenly I was totally under.
Instantly, I was once again in our dream,
head ringing from your piercing scream.
“What the hell are you doing? Have you lost your mind?
Damnit woman, how can you think I would leave you behind?
It took every bit of my strength just to keep you from crashing.
What do I get for it but mistrust, suspicion and psychic bashing?
How can you really doubt that I exist?
How can you think I’m not with you in this?
Can’t you feel me? Do you really think that you are crazy?
That I am some figment of your mind, a deadly imagined haze?"
Your voice was much deeper, quavering with righteous anger.
The look in your eyes was cold, icy, and it spoke of danger.
You reached out and grabbed me, your steely fingers biting into my flesh.
You shook me so hard your fingers tore through the sleeve of my dress.
"Never in all our lifetimes have you ever considered burning the book.
I would have come to you. I was still too weak and I could only look.
How could you have so little faith in me?
How could you doubt we are meant to be?
I did not leave you. I… fell, back into the well.
The blood you gave tonight was just the spell.
It gave me back enough strength to return to our dream.
Did you really have to put me through hell in between?"
I could feel the pain of your grasp like vipers biting my arms.
“Let go of me!” I yelled back my voice so very full of alarm.
Your eyes grew wide. You let go whispering, “Never harm.”
and pulled me to you again, your embrace acting like a charm,
a safe haven from all the crazy, leaving me totally disarmed.
A voice inside said, "No way you’re getting out unharmed."
Your arms were like a cage, solid, made of steel.
I admit your strength a huge part of the appeal.
In your arms the rage and confusion again gave way to tears.
You would not budge, holding me, “Sh, tell me of your fears.”
I could not speak, nor breathe, only ache inside my shaking shell.
Was this but merely the briefest glimpse of your aforementioned hell?
I thought the massive knot sucking air from my chest should surely ease.
You were holding me within the dream. Why did that not appease?
The reality of the situation you described was fast becoming clear.
Be you real or not, I'm destined to lose you. That was part of my fear.
If I can’t bear the thought of it now, before you come through the gate,
how will I endure parting after a lifetime together, if that is our fate?
It seems as if were to be the kindest of all possibilities to go through,
aside that is, of course, from never at all having gotten to know you.
I know I will lose you.
I will lose myself too.
These were but some of my fears,
tiny whispers choked through tears
that fell down onto your chest like rain.
You whispered, “Give me all of your pain.”
I could feel the dark energy being pulled out of me and into you
causing silent, lung racking sobs I didn't think I would live through.
After the tears were gone, there was something about being in your arms,
like some kind of exotic drug lulling me into a foggy kind of pseudo calm.
Where was my survival instinct, that little voice inside screaming alarm,
that thing I am supposed to be hard wired with so that I can go on?
Somewhere in the back of my mind, idly, I noticed that dry you had remained.
It was such a little thing, but it stayed in the back of my mind just the same.
You should have been soaked by the river tears.
You made me feel so safe, so far from my fears.
