The innocence of a shimmering smile

binds in an indubitable force

if escape were possible, run for miles

An inevitable return in store, of course

Freedom seemingly a farce

Controlled response wholly owned

like a ball and chain the spell cast

and obligation compels the need to atone

for the thought of leaving feelings sinking

projection of emotions

The need for recompense, overwhelming

as was the intention.


Once a month the dues are paid

like clockwork the painful cycle

arrests, detains; the bed is made

blood, awarded vehicle

debilitatingly dizzy and weak

unable to withstand the shimmer

control lost unable to speak

no doubt who is the winner

Age old battle that drugs suppressed

temporarily lulled

like glasses filtering impressed

the pain effectively dulled


Freedom comes with a price

the beast rages within

Strategy in a grain of rice

the moon's full smile a shimmerin'

balanced achieved, zen's ying and yang

gift given to recieve

to lift the curse the shaman sang

the contract to release

the debt owed to be paid

one life for another

new contract sealed decisions made

no person shall asunder


The being walks in harmony

the warmth kissing skin

the beastie quelled, a memory

hidden deep within

the pull of night's shimmering Queen

death's trade intact

is lost on the reanimated being

the nature of the pact

one walks by day the other by night

never again together

the painful howl, blood thirsty fright

forbidden love forever
