Fair Maiden

A fair maiden
Left her heaven,
Where every hopeful
Dream was made in.

Her toes touched Sea,
Waves walked her in,
Begging that she
Never leave them.
Tentacles rose up
And grabbed,
But Earth sank Sea
As up it stabbed
Into new land
And clasped her hand
With icy diamond
And one demand:
“EVERY STONE THAT IS IS YOURS
BUT HERE FOREVER STAND.”
Night awoke in lightning
As stars streaked toward the ground,
Blinding even ancient trees
With a constellation crown.

And she said, “Stop.”

They had to heed the call.

“All you powers push and pull,
I am not here to join you all,”
And then sunk into darkest halls,
Walking through the world’s last wall,
Finding nightmares
In mid-fall,
Reaching for the nightmared,
There to help and hold.

“It’s okay.
You are safe.
I’ll be with you
Till you wake.
Then you’ll go,
But have faith,
For I am Love
In different shape.”
