I lie here waiting

by Taliesin

Age Group: Adult

I lie here waiting,

Looking, staring at this empty space

This place that lies next to me,

The very place where you should be

but you are not here.

They keep us apart,

The ones that call themselves your family,

And would have you marry to another

For their own cruel self interest, icy cold.

Would you do such a thing?

Sacrifice yourself to keep our secret,

our *Sigheh from being known?

Crystal clear rivers of salt

That flow from my hearts ocean,

Carve their way down my face

at the thought of this death to such a love,

The love we know we have

Yet is unknown to all others

that you might keep your life.

Trapped between the fates,

Between that of desire and love

beyond the *Czar’s chocolate

and cold dark tradition

that would swallow our love whole

if it would be allowed to.

My beloved, please throw not our love

Into the waiting mouth of vultures

that scour and scavenge

all love from our dying world,

to be with one that loves you not

but has the advantage of the approval of scavengers.

Rather, let the mirror within yourself

Guide you safely into my arms

Author's Notes: *For information on what a Sigheh is (see-ga) see this link

*The Czar's chocolate refers to Dilettante Chocolate founded by a family of Russian chocolateers. They have a wonderful Chocolate restaurant on Broadway here in seattle Washington.

Their history can be found here:
