Merkabah

How long has it been?

A month? A year?

How many centuries?

Since our secret ritual

Blue flames and floral

Our final night together

Don’t you remember?

We were together before . .

 

Dearest Emperor

I’m at your feet

I dreamt of you last night

Don’t be shy

How could I refuse you?

I’ll give it all away

I already told you . .

 

I already gave you

my heart, in dark magic

in our untold ceremony

it was so long ago . .

 

You don’t remember?

When you made me yours?

Marked by your own hand . .

In finely etched curves . .

 

Our past life

In the garden

By the well?

Our secret ritual . .

When you forced yourself

To mark me . .

When I cut into you

With my own blade . .?

 

Another day goes by . .

Why are you waiting?

There’s no need to ask

Take everything

My heart is still beating

I’m still here, bleeding

could I ever

deceive you?

 

You said : It’s yours . .

 

No . . master . .

Forgive me . .

I’ve come

under the power

of your possession . .

Allow me

To unveil

the farthest corners

of your territory . .

Let me remind you

of the exact borders

of your reach . .

 

In the night

What use is my body?

Have the waxing moon assist me,

a beacon to draw you ashore.

You don’t remember

the beauty of your country?

 

Once more . .

Allow me

To dust off

the memory of

the quality of

the commitment of

your slave . .

 

This is your earth

Say the word

and allow me

to polish

the floors

of your sanctuary

to reveal the gleam

and the true majesty

of your domain . .

 

Dear Emperor,

Pray,

I am prepared to receive you

night or day

in antique rhythm

and breathe life into

ancient instruments

pleasant and profound

Oh what a joy it will be!

I’ll draw circles on the ground

in a secret language

of lovers untamed

and dance inside

an iron frame

reaching for the sky . .

 

Remember the promise we made?

A sign, a scar,

To carry through the soul world

To reconcile in the next?

 

I promised . .

I’d stop time

I’d drain the blood

Of your enemy

With my teeth!

Don’t question me!

I can’t sleep!

Anything

for you!

An army

to serve you

to prove myself . .

So lose yourself

Lie down

In infinite

fall upon me

in thunder, in anger

I’ll make you remember . .

 

Don’t let me lose faith,

I accepted this mission

to erase my person

in ecstasy

in our bond.

 

Now will you

ease the pressure . . ?

 

From here, the stars shine brighter . .

 

Here is your paper

your rhyme

to trust

we have no names

in truth

we are the same . .

Yes, take everything

it’s yours . .

We were together before . .
