The Heavens

The heavens, 
Of reaching them, have I set my aim
In their essence do I dwell
From their roots do I originate
And in them,
Lies my heart!

Yet, I shall renounce of them
Shall it be
That the whispers of the night
Scathe me!

I shall renounce of them
As, how am I to enjoy them
If I shall have to enjoy their
Thousands of moons
All alone?

I shall renounce,
Even if such shall hurt the Gods
I shall renounce,
As my cause remains that of love,
Love which have been paved
Here, in a realm which makes the purity
Of its bond even more difficult
Love, which has its meaning in the stars
Love, on which relies the cosmos
To keep its beating heart on!

After all,
I did choose to fall for the sake of this love
I did choose to fall on an Earth
Which laughs at the misery of its children
I did choose to fall 
Merely because the love willed to me
Clawed at my heart, tearing it into tiny pieces!

Being happy requires being selfish
In my selfishness
I choose to renounce of the heavens
Even if such would require
That my soul ceases to be!

Why, I remain, here
A puppet dancing to the tunes of fate
I remain, here
A being whose life belongs not to her
I remain, here,
As seaweed, drifting at sea
Pulled by the tides,
Or wilting on the shores
As long as I remain of use to those powers
Watching over me!

But the pain is getting harsher,
And harsher
As if it were the dagger of gloom
Pleasuring itself in plunging into the 
Softest parts of my mortal body
Laughing at the blood being drawn from it
Enjoying my tears
And my despair!

It is all a matter of time
It is just one life
I shall have not another
The heavens,
Of the hope they give do I 
Build my strength
But I shall renounce them
If such would be required!
