Fate

With my dreams plentiful,
Like sparkling jewels,
I call you out of the darkness.
With silence slicing through air,
Over and over again,
With our dull knives,
I come to taunt fate,
For it is you that must return.
Fly home,
Flapping your wings wildly,
Beat the sky at its own game,
Keeping the light where it shines now.
Come out of the darkness,
Flailing like a feather,
Riding each curvature of the wind.
If time should shake us repeatedly
Saying the choice is not ours,
I want to train the arches of my feet
To stay firm for years and years,
Until we stop running.
Claim it,
This flickering flame causing shadows to rise,
Taking with it,
Power,
For darkness to follow us,
On foot,
In pursuit.

I cannot let go.
Come out of the darkness,
Before our dreams wisp into smoke.
