Revival By Jodie Plant
A thousand silhouettes dance around my head as I breathe in the icy kiss of snowflakes
I wonder about how different our disorientated lives would be if I could turn back time
Standing there, the silence, the loneliness, it almost feels alive
another being, a monster or an empty indefinite void calling my name
Maybe the ever dark will be better then the sweet nothing I can’t break free from
Do you recognise me? …. From wherever you slumber, can you see me?
I miss you tonight, I miss you forever
But I hate you for abandoning me in this purgatory of ghastly dark
Leaving me to dwell in the very spirit of other people’s evil happiness.
I wish I could revive you, we were both supposed to make it
If the power coursed through my aching screaming veins I’d use it to shock and revive your pleasant heart
Then maybe it would stick around long enough to complete me.
I wish I could revive you,
revive me, for I am lost broken tender and fragile
I wish I could revive you…. Or perhaps, join you and then we could still have our forever
Maybe if I did I could be whole again but
Instead, a vessel is all that stands here, breathing empty and burning breaths that catch the snowflakes, trapping them in my caged body
melting just like me.
And as a thousand silhouettes dance around my head I decide that wherever you are I soon will be there too.
