DAUGHTER OF EVE

I CAN SAVE HIM

I CAN BRING HIM TO A PLACE… BE THE SPACE

HE NEEDS TO FACE HIS DEMONS

HIS TORMENT

AND GLADIATOR, DEFEAT THEM ALL

I KNOW THIS

I CAN DO THIS

I CAN BE HIS SHIELD

HIS BREASTPLATE

BE IT MY FATE, TO TAKE THE BLOWS SOMETIMES

BE THE IMAGE OF HIS FOES

AS FISTS CONNECT WITH SOFT FLESH

IN ME

I CAN SAVE HIM!

HE HAS HONOURED ME WITH HIS DREAMS

HIS DEEPEST FEARS

HE HAS DEVOURED MY LIFE AND MADE ME PART OF HIS

OF IDENTITY? MINE IS NO MORE

INSTEAD, I SAVE HIM

I AM HIS REDEMPTION

THE BLACK EYES

THE BROKEN RIBS

THE LOST TEETH

ONLY STRENGTHEN MY BELIEF

THAT HE WILL DO MOST ANYTHING TO KEEP ME

IS THAT NOT THE GREATEST LOVE?

THE ESSENCE OF PASSION?

NO ONE UNDERSTANDS… THIS IS MY DESTINY!

WHAT I WAS CREATED FOR!

WHERE ELSE SHOULD I GO?

HE IS MY BEGINNING AND MY END.

HE KNOWS MY SOUL

LIKE I ONCE KNEW MY SPIRIT

BUT IT IS ALIEN NOW

IT LEFT WITH THE AMBULANCE

KNOWING FULL WELL I COULD NOT SUSTAIN IT

IT ABANDONED ME

IN THE MANNER THAT FLESH IS WONT TO DO

MY SPIRIT HAS ENTERED NO MAN’S LAND

TO BEAR THE SHAME OF MY SUBMISSION

SPIRIT SLEEPS IN “THE VALLEY OF DRY BONES” NOW

DEMORALISED

INCOHERENT

BUT I CHOSE THIS…DID I NOT?

I NEEDED TO FEEL THAT I BELONGED TO SOMEONE

SO, I CHOSE SACRIFICE

FOR THE GREATER GOOD…HIS GOOD

I STAND IN THE GAP

LEST HIS DOPPELGANGER WIN

AND DEVOUR THE GOOD MAN

I KNOW HE IS

INSIDE.
