The wail

by Liliarian Sonder

And as that wretched wail
Cut through the air, my heart laid bare,
And all the horrid memories
the loss, the pain, the broken face of my dead brother,
And all the faces
Of those I couldn’t save.
I couldn’t save.
And they all came crashing at my chest
with such crushing force,
My heart,
So supple and so soft,
shattered
as broken glass.

And as I woke
A yawning chasm of darkness.
Dark outside,
and a frothing, frightening darkness in my heart
as my soul betraying my soul
With a ravishing lust for vengeance
In place
of a love of life.
The love that had lit my life
as a roaring bonfire,
Extinguished.
Only tendrils of smoke remained,
Floating away.
Disappearing.

I called out to the Merciful Princess!
And for the first time,
I saw her turn her back to me
her eyes averted.
And with that loss
of her sweet love
my rage just grew
Churning. Burning. Threatening
To overtake my soul.

Yet I remembered
still
The Feel of life.
The Feel of love.
To live again, I must first die again
and so I called on all that I had, all that I had, my last remaining gasp of life
To call destruction to my twisted body
In hopes
the love of life
could rekindle
in me.
