It’s Never too Late

Behind Drawn Curtains

Act 1:
In the wake of the infernal arson you dance – 
The fairy, the virgin, the countess, the witch.
Oh, how they sentenced you to the stake; 
It was one fine Sunday morning centuries ago!

Act 2, Scene 1:
To this day, through the ashes, your face floats,
A weathered charcoal portrait, perverted.
The smoke won’t go down
This dust will never settle

Act 2, Scene 2:
And it’s here, the fateful moment, it has finally arrived
However contrary, today is the tomorrow I dreamed of
As I stand now here before you, barefoot, slab of ice ‘neath my feet, 
My neck squeezed in a noose, my being numbed by the wintry fear,
Waiting, waiting for you to play the final notes of my life’s opus;
“A good day to die”, I hear my demons sing, “A good day indeed!”

The Final Act:
This is the end of euphonic laughter echoing in forests
And thirst-quenching tears pouring out of cloven earth. 
Never would the roses grow again,
Never again shall I taste your pain.
For your name has poisoned my soul,
Exhausting, now, forever my lifeblood.
Refuse not my sacrifice:
A chalice full of my death.

Drink lest thy shadow shalt fade away
Drink lest thy spirit shalt fly away
