In an early time, you were possessed
or maybe, it was I who was possessed
owned, but not bought
seen, but not sought
an error in judgment is why I’m obsessed.
Once long ago, you obeyed command
or perhaps, I never was in command
speak, when spoken to
break, when broken in two
embrace declines in a hierarchy of hands.
In the beginning, he was always your end
or it seems, I am not a means to an end
lost in the leap
crawl in the creep
the barbaric have evolved in a moment of zen.
At the start, you were a price for a reason
indeed, the Lamb sacrificed with no reason
hesitate, then halt
porcine, in fault
in love, we cannot select the season.
