Stay by my side
as my light grows dim,
as my blood slows down,
and my nerves shatter
with stabbing pain.
As my heart grows weak,
and the wheels of my being
turn slowly.

Stay by my side
as my fragile body
is racked by pain,
which verges on truth,
and manic time
continues scattering dust,
and furious life
bursts out in flames.

Stay by my side
as I fade
so you can point
to the end of my struggle
and the twilight
of eternal days
at the low, dark edge of life.

Re: See....
This had nada to do with anyone or any one thing, actually. Just growing older and how our desires and priorities change.

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
