A Plea to the Dying
by Emilie Autumn

So that's it then
All there is
You've moved on without me
You do not suffer as I do
It is so clear
What can I do and
Yet I will reach you somehow
With my mind
All I have
I will invade your dreams
I will not ask if it is right
I do not care
You must see me
Time is running out
No, I cannot touch you
But I will reach
Beyond dimension
Beyond realm
Beyond memory
To touch you
In some small way
And tell you
Beg you
To stop
And think
What you are doing
Is it what you want
Is it what you think you are supposed to want
Is it the only comfort you have ever known
And you feel safe
Well, you are right to want this
And I am wrong to want to stop you
But you need not make this move
Who says you must
If you love
If she loves
Why ask the world to take notice
Just let it be
And go on loving out of choice
Not duty
Am I so
What do I not see
When I look at her
What you do
Why do you not know that
Everything you ever wished for
Everything you were afraid to say
Out loud
Everything you hate
And desire
And will never understand
Lies in one who would never be brave enough
To tell you
Can you but open your eyes
For one single shining
And see yourself in the light that I do
Can you not see that
You are the answer to all my fears
I could feel safe with you and
Yes, I have my daggers and scars
And everything that would keep you back
But if you make this move
You close a door you can never reopen
And I will not pass through it anymore
And I can tell you that a life lived in waiting for what never comes
Is far better than a life content in the knowledge
Of what is certain never to be
Can you not wait
Can you not be brave
And see beyond this moment
Beyond this sense of comfort
You feel see your life
Open before you
Trusting in things to come
Believing they will be worth the wait and
Thrilling in the thought that
You have no idea what the next dream will bring you
Now I am here
With you
See my eyes as you have so many times before
See the way
I look at you
See what you always felt
But never dared to show
Believe in your power
To get the thing you dream of
Even when it is the very thing you fear
The thing
No other man can hope to attain
Look into your heart and see written there
The name
Of her you love
Who is it that fascinates you
Who is it that knows you better than you yourself
Who is it that will be waiting
When it all ends
At the end of the path
With a smirk
And a sarcastic comment
And a kiss on the neck
Don’t leave me
