I dance in the dark

“I dance in the dark
alone, afraid
The time has come
My partner?
My friend?
Where are you now?
‘stand still like ice
but be fierce like flame’
My brow
slick with fury
flowing deep
Unfettered I stand
Terrible and damnedOh daughter mine!
your hands, so cold!

Reaching
Grasping
Blackened
But beating
Slowly beating

Let us dance into the dark
together so terrible
but damned alone.”
