she, the power behind it all

my ancient lover
lays slumbering in my breast
too comfortable for my own good;
she resists the images of the day
both memory and the scents
of a world gone mad and yet unchanged;
until like a corpse preserved in the moors
she drifts to the surface of my mind,
leans in close and whispers –


and i obey
