Fate

Am I good?

What good does it do

If I look away

If I turn-my-self-inside out

For you

All for you

——

All of these long days

Nights alone

All of these

Wooden sacred thrones

We sacrifice

Our hearts of clay

On the knife

Into the fire

——

Flesh and blood

Galaxies edge

Your spirit free

——

What good am I

If I look away

——

Valued soul

Hands of fate

to hold dear

show affection

cherished heart

Wide awake

Against the hands of time

Our fate

to keep or cultivate with care and affection

nurture

to entertain

To harbor in the mind deeply and resolutely

—-

But the heart caved in

Over the burning sacrifice

That we make

And we starve for affection

That we give so freely away

What good am I

If I look away

If I could

If I could

If I could

Heart of clay

-E
