Quicksilver Lies

I cannot forget the feeling,
The strangeness of being.
The liquid fear of the moment
Like mercury unbounded,
Burning through my defences.
To the marrow, the heart of the matter,
Until reason fled. Like atoms scattered
In that first act of creation
Or destruction. For with you
There is really no difference.
We are just collateral damage,
Victims of circumstance
Chosen to be your disciples.
