Alchemy of Age

A Chapter by Moon's fairest daughter

For decay is life's fate...
What alchemy He doth create!
In an armour of rusted iron,
Icarus screams his impotency.
Each sinew's screw squeaks.
Like a rat, held midair by its tail,
I dangle by a strand of wilted grass.
Fragile like a porcelain doll.
As though the smallest tremor
would dismantle me.

What a beautiful fragility. An aching flows through each line, woven from the wings of Icarus. And you take the ancient voice and awaken it even in this moment, and he lives again, somehow his soul mingled into yours. Oh, who can condemn the joy of wishing to reach the heavens on wild wings?
