  1. Dialog

    This is a piece I wrote about my best friend... Well, I suppose it's not about her, so much as for her. I hope the message is clear...

    You stand in my shadow even before you see me
    A tower
    Powerful in the distance, resistance is futile.
    Stay a while
    Bend to my will, my plans for destruction. My instruction is as follows

    Leave what you love
    Give what you want to
    Grieve for the sun
    And remember what you thought you had
    Accept who you are
    Hate what I'm not
    Cover your heart
    And release what you fought to have

    And to hold
    Broken hands in the sky to blot out the image of me
    You deny
    My inevitability, my comfort and my embrace
    My sinister validity
    Sister of intimacy
    Blisters from whispering
    My name on your lips
    While you sleep and slip
    Into dreams that bring you screams and
    Back to me attacking you


    I awake.
    I stand alone in this desert
    With the sun in constant sunset,
    Spreading your darkness over me
    One more step.
    And then another.

    I am walking and you cannot turn me away
    Not today nor tomorrow, borrow another's heart
    You shall not have mine
    I design to destroy you, I abhor you
    My feet may bleed but I shall not ignore you
    I will see her freed from you
    And your shadow only gives me a marker
    The darker it grows the closer you come
    The harder the road the sweeter the prize
    And there is no sweeter prize than freedom
    In her eyes.

    So stand in the distance and cast your shadow
    Blot the sun now and await my arrival
    For tomorrow
    The clouds in the sky shall be from your funeral pyre
