I’m Alive…

But only for Them
No other lives
May claim
What I’ve given
Away

It’s true
I’m alive
Bleeding out
Burdened by inescapable
Fate

Can’t keep a life
Inside me alive
Just once, only once
All the others
Dead

What is life?
Leading the dead?
Purifying and pacifying
The Others who’ve bled
And died?

I suppose
For I am a Queen
Of dead things
And They love me
Burning

Upon Their pedestal
Black and white and gray
Yes, red as a bloody wound
And I smile
Kindly
