I stand here to present
an arrogant appeal to your better senses
This is no argument
but a humble plea to lower your pretenses
For you were there when the moon fell
Don’t you remember, you were there?
You pulled me out of my reverie
And out of the way of the poisoned air
And you know what I am destined for
Surely, you know what I am meant to do
Is not that why you saved my life?
Back when we were young, and whole, and true?
But that my worth would come to so little,
If I had only had but a clue
Remember, my erstwhile lover
I would have never chosen you
Ah, well, what’s done is done
And what must happen, happens
I’m not afraid of your thunder and lightning
for I have fought with dragons
I gave you, once, a prophecy
A warning borne out of nothing but love
You underestimate your enemies
And one day, that will fuck you up
But, I am not your enemy, my dear
Oh, no, though one day I know I must be
I hope your freedom and space, my dear
Are worth having forsaken me.
Though, in this depth, I feel strangely free
And for that, once again, I owe you my sanity
The first for pulling me out of the sea
the second, for holding me down and drowning me
Take note, my erstwhile lover
Things are not always as they seem
The age of nightmares is just beginning
And all life is only a dream.
