Would you care to dance with me tonight?
Goddess of Crossroads. We meet again.
Take my hand and let the torch lead the way.
She moved slowly through the sand and water.
The river bend right across the fields crashes against the rocks
Once a peaceful river, now a tumultuous stormy sea
Under the tempestuous sky you call out to the Ancient Ones
Dancing in a circle the elements you evoke pour out their power
The overloaded skies tremble, shout and yammer
Goddess of Thunder, as you hold your breath to contemplate the chaos.
Let the heavens crumble, you shout with the voices of a thousand souls.
Red, purple and blue beams of light tear the open air around us
It’s as if you are the heavy rain pouring on your own core
It’s as if your sheer will is keeping the candles from weeping
The eternal now is just a mere casualty, you’ve been here before
For the Ones of Old who still Are answer to your vivid call.
You are the one with the storm, the one with the rage
And with every cried out song of glory, you furiously dance far…
Far away from reach… You dance your mystery.
Goddess of Magic, allow me in your forever spinning weave of reality.
Let the ever expanding web of existence ripple.
As you move I’m mesmerized, deeply torn and eager.
Lurking around the cliffs of your paradise, I find myself
You are The Three Fold as Her cloak shrouds your whole.
And as you reach the pinnacle of the Priestess, I bask in your glory
Your eyes set on me hold the secret pathway; I’m lured.
Draw me in and make me part-take in your growing cone of power.
The piercing cold waves reach out to us in the primal pull of creation
Once I’m inside I know there’s no turning back.
Goddess of the Sea, blanket me in your depths where light never ventured.
The torment of the never ending waters soon turns into absorption.
There you are, once again, a living statue of wonder casting your spell at will
My thirst guides my body, as the frenzy sets in… I give myself to the Sea.
In your salty lips, the sweetest of all nectar. Only you can feed my wandering spirit.
The eternal circle has brought us back together, and shall split us apart once more.
However, what is it really to part? If this moment will be forever.
Murk sets all around, as you send me into the dark waters. It takes me.
It seems like eternity, slowly going under… It fills me up. Away. Awake.
For as long as I am told, as long as time is old. I’m yours to hold.
Goddess of War, I inhale and bow to your power.
Lift the veil from my eyes, so I can pledge myself to you.
I can see what’s left of me. I’m aware of your desire.
A pile of broken dreams, cruel thoughts and the death of a wounded heart.
You touch me with a thousand eyes and I feel the draw of your sharp knife.
“Face me now at the draw of my sword or face down forevermore”, echoes.
A broken body, a broken will and a broken spirit, of a broken man.
“Forge yourself back up again, and if necessary once more.
This world is not for the weak, it is for the hunter, for the warrior.
Fight for yourself or perish before the shore.” Perish… Perish…
Goddess of the Battle Cry, it emanates from you…
It is you the one they call, and I am them too.
I’m taken in a state of despair, as time creeps away from me. Drowning.
What will I be without your voice? What will I be without your torch?
I plea, beg and eventually sunder. It is the time to face the storm.
I’m dazed, dazed away from non-existence, into the the ticking present.
My hands shiver from the cold. I’m only human under your sword.
With a quick clean cut, you tear me down. Destroy me. Set havoc into my soul.
I’m released. I no longer fear, nor will I ever drown again.
You set me free. You have, You do, You will…
Goddess of Secret Names, you whisper to me.
And by your kindness and grace, my name you declaim.
I knee, merely a soldier. Here I make vows of loyalty to you.
A gift demands a gift, and I’ll honor you with my life.
The sounds you sing tell stories of Great Names of eras long forgotten.
Eternity in your lips, no Name is left unspoken, unhonored; campfire tales of glory.
I exhale as the mystic fills in my soul, I finally see your eyes
The mountains, and the depths and the oceans in you
The sharp cold sea, the dark clouds and your voice
Your words are orders, and they north my primeval lust.
Goddess of Crossroads, your torch will be my lead through the rain.
Here you’ll part from me, till the day we shall meet once again .
Gripped. I see your hair twirsl in the wind, as if coloring it with rushing blood.
Craving. I see every curve of your body under Her cloak, as it lifts.
Vanishing in the mist, leaving behind leaves of a Dragon Tree. Parting from me.
You took me in and gave me a Name. And then You left, as swift as You came.
I leave the security of your embrace, away from your grace. Unbroken, a newborn.
And it’s all because of You: The One With The Storm.
Inspired by and in honor to: Naelyan Wyvern, for unknowingly
being a safe lighthouse to my days of stormy raging seas and shifting tides.
For as long as I’m told, as long as time is old. I’m yours to hold.
