My pain, she will see

I shall fill her fearing eyes

My heart, she will feel

I shall share all my sorrow

Her breath shall flutter under the strain

My wisdom, she will learn

I shall overwhelm her mind with knowledge

My bruises, she will understand

I shall mark her body with my torment

Her heart shall wrench and her tears flow, but she will never know the reason

My fear, she will consume

I shall forge her bonds from the shackles of my own

 

My mind, she can never understand

I shall lock away my thoughts

Their burden one I cannot comprehend

 

Her heart, it beats

I do not know what for

All she is is what I’ve shared with her

Could it be that even in my kingdom of darkness she is so much more?
