the dark people [pt. 2]

8/29/22

When they
come
(and they will
come)
they will smile
and stab grins
all down your
spine

you won’t be able to
move
you won’t be able to
call out
you won’t be able to
do all the things
you wish you did
earlier

they’ll only be
one
thing
left

the one thing
that never fails
especially
when we do.

You won’t even
have to say
anything at all.
Because they
wouldn’t hear it
even if
you did.

All you have to do
is cling to one thing
remaining
the one thing
you know

lock in,
even in hell,
and lock eyes
with the one thing
love always
burns
to ash.

like a lightswitch.

we hear the words:

“you are loved…
unconditionally…
no matter what”
shall cease to be
their silly song
and become itself,
a weapon of Light,
the Trojan Horse
of the Underworld.

No?

Even Odin
said “fuck you”
to his so-called
fate.

(He was hardly the first.)

Have you ever walked in that man’s shoes?

True victories, love,
are hardly ever seen.

Some quests are solo, albeit temporaneous.

True warriors,
it is said,
are silent
to all but
a sensei.

And he tells us,
faintly:

“To become
that which
you love,
first
become
that which
you hate.”
