For one to whom this should not be for you
were meant to love me.
But, so confused, you thought me you
and misread my heart as yours.
But in my heart love was there
even as you cast blame for all your hurt and pain
upon the one who was always true.
Together, we journeyed-across oceans, through time.
We stood upon a thousand shores and gazed upon a thousand reflections
until land and pool, person and image blurred into your vision
of a dark world of black waters and jagged rocks.
In your vessel we voyaged to fantastic lands
of whispers and gods and monsters and secrets
I left you for a fortunate isle.
I left you to journey alone
into your will
into your darkness
into your end.
I think I will whisper truth, truth, truth into the wind.
Perhaps a gull will carry my message and perch herself upon your ship’s mast
When you reach your end, will you know?
Know the truth.
It is my hope-not for vengeance but for justice that only the truth can yield.
