Including Me

Please speak of love.
My heart and soul abide within
the realms of cell and skin.
So many years, and yet
I've never found a way to win
the many games you choose to play
in life.

Please speak of love.
I cannot live another moment
contrived within the depravation
of this vital, blessed, lonely need.
Why do you choose to feed upon
such incandescent energy...?

Oh beloved, I was there for you.
Amid the harm that ever grew
itself from your decisions.
I tried so hard to lead you past
the realms of their illusions.
And yet you chose to run away
from me.

And so, I ask yet once again.
Please speak of love.
My heart and soul abide within
the realms of cell and skin.
So many years, and yet
I've never found a way to win
the games they play.

Shocked and halted by the memories,
I fade within the shadows cast
by all that you hold fast. Oh reverie!
The love divine, when yours and mine
lived on within the love of one and all,
including me...
