Leaving Troy

from Shine Out by Jonathan Segel



midst falling old stones
rocks heavier still
break body and bone
i falter
can't believe your potential
please use it, not me
o young prophetess
know we both knew
from the first kiss
scary prspect
slid right in that time line
to die not on water
nor on land
not fed nor famished
not naked nor clothed
in character mask, once more to play
this role again, at last the real taste
i see you only go with any doer of real deed
all i am is the memory of deeds done
then am i to be
our wintertime king
not something that
to myself i would bring
but i feel it
tempting fate to go
with it wait, you see us
do we?
o do not dwell
on what might have been
when no-one believes
your future scenes
you see, in depth moving nearer
you are
we've knocked down the walls of your old city
you've known it wasn't your place to dwell
if you should trip when you leave what's familiar
get up, and show no-one that you fell
