Embodiment Is it possible to believe in a broken vow, When you only break yourself? I fear the fading embers, That suggest an imminent conclusion. - There is no dream to compare with reality, Wherein I walk, clothed akin to humanity. Iím so afraid the end is near, The end, not of me, but of all that I hold dear. - Iambic pentameter? Least of all the things that matter. Iím a soul alone, donít know how I bear, The cross that Jesus bore and is still condemned to wear. - Just one stray letter, And the entire meaning is changed. No cause for concern, For lessons have I learned. - I abhor this inconclusiveness, A lack of resolution never finds me at my best. Iím afraid of the change I wrought, When misplaced love is the thrill I sought. - Who dares wins, And the sin falls to me again. Wandering, like an arrow without aim, Through corporeal fiends who only seek to gain. - By my loss I am renewed, Reft of life I am subdued. That life is yours and I donít know how Iíll cope, When your very breath dignifies my only hope. - Iíll cry again this time next May, Thinking of the life you so selflessly gave away. Iím the embodiment of your dream, In a life where nothingís what it seems. --- -- - Ravenheart - 2002
