(Originally published October 23, 2009)
I have fallen from beyond the sky,
And risen from the bottom of the sea;
Where else can I go, what else can I be?
I have given life, I have taken life,
And kept my life when all others have died;
What else is left to do, what else can be tried?
I have known brilliance, I have enjoyed beauty,
And scattered all the Muse with my sullen glance;
Who else might I find, who else is worth the chance?
I have flown upon visions, both in day and night,
And studied long to understand this endless chase;
When will it come to pass, when will I glimpse her face?
