I Am Where My Heart is

Wed, 08/12/2015 - 14:04 -- kaffle

In the direction of which my heart relies, I find my own warmths life support

To embrace the endless swirling sky, my towers never err and fall short

In the direction of which my heart throbs, my flame is at no point free to keep

As I challenge all challenges every day, I earn my food and reap my sleep


Don't take me from my castle, oh lord, my heart is not in the fields with the sheep

My peace comes from all forms of treachery,  with acid pits and  beasts of valleys deep

In a nest among scores of vile tsuchigumo, wrestling on the back of the Ziz

Even between the coils of a Naga, my fear implodes against my awe that is


To bring in every precious breathe of air, rebelling the touch of disease itself

True freedom waltzes where it may, a death to the dream is death to oneself

Wherever my treasure finds habitation, there my heart follows in suit

A safety that sacrifices ones own lifeline, is an unsatisfying simpleton's loot
