The Sacrifice

The Sacrifice How can I forget that day, you asked me to leave the Temple, my Beloved, once upon a time, on a dark and misty morn, rending us apart, so strange, so forlorn. Why must I be the Limitless, entombed in a limited form? Now quiet my beloved sit still, do not mourn! Why did you cry when you were born? Does the chrysalis weep for the butterfly born?
