The Chasm

Can you see me standing here my love? Among my army, my family, my friends, that spreads beyond all horizons? I like to think that you can. Each singular member with me is a precious part of my heart and I in turn am precious to them in a way you would never understand. But do not worry, we all hold in our hands a single weapon that tears down all falsehood, hypocrisy, and self-importance, and we will share it with you. I as well am just a drop among the flood waiting to crash against you.

This army is here for you my love, we gathered to show you the truth. I now have people to stand with, so I am no longer alone. I was never alone. If I fall I have trillions to catch me. Do you see them as I see them my love, do you feel deep comfort when we move and the earth shakes? We are all excited to show you the truth, since you are the last people who do not know it.

I see you very clearly on the other side of the chasm, with those poor people standing with you. Those who you have convinced to need you. I am among trillions and you are leading hundreds, so I can see you there watching us with your arrogant gait, your head tilted to one side like we are a puzzle to solve. I know you so well, better than you ever knew me, better than you know your own conviction. I can see your emotions, the small failures in the image you tried your whole existence to emulate.

Are you as scared of us? I think you are. Or am I looking at you now through the combined courage of those with me? I have no fear of you or anything, I want you to know that, I have no pity either; all I feel towards you is a sadness that I wish you would drop your flimsy weapons and join us as so many of your partners have. We will come to you as one person to tell you something vastly more important then our past together, something you have needed to hear since the beginning yet have avoided. It is the truth, and though it will hurt you hurt to hear, we as one person will not weep.

You my love have always been wrong, and you have run out of chances to learn this on your own.
