Such dangerous steps I take today –
And who will look after me?
Will I find comfort in the poppies
That in fairyland grow free?

Yet it seems even the poppies wither –
They’re tumbling down the slope.
And when the sky starts falling too,
It smashes my heart’s hope.

There’s really no eluding
What destiny has shown.
Any sacrifice is useless
When it’s written down in stone.

Every further step’s a sin
Even though it’s brief,
But guiltless, sinless days
Bring my heart such grief.

Let me be a girl of snow
In a fairy tale from long ago.


***

Now we are the casualties
Of shameless lies and slurs again.
Like a venomous snake, cold words
Wind and slither down our lane.

And now I’m lying in my grave –
He buried me before I was dead.
I am so hurt by this man of ice –
The man with who I shared my bed.

Josephine, you’re so receptive –
Like a mother you’ve been to me
You were sent by the Almighty
As my inseparable twin to be.


***

O Lord, I cannot live on the land –
Let waves float me out over the sea.
Drinking foaming waves, I would soon
Turn into an Angel and fly away free!
