You who carry the burden of loneliness upon your womb,
In the abyss of darkness without compassion you bloom;
And you could - descending, turn this frozen mist of time into a wall,
For the world - descending, your touch would stain with misery the light within us all.
And the shore brakes from the sea and follows
As your shaking shadow, as a snake shaped hollow;
And you could - forgetting, brake us all between your lashes,
For the world - forgetting, your tears would turn it all to ashes.
In your eyes the moon and stars reflect
And all the trees and fruits of life are wrecked,
And you could - glaring, peel the rays from our watchful sun,
For the world - glaring, one glance would darken everyone.
And all this is known, but the longing in my soul -
To call you forth and once again be whole;
And so I sacrifice my mirrored heart,
To you my queen of black and salt.
