Kali, Frozen dagger of Time: Take my words away. They’ve proven useless in conveying my heart’s desire, which is beyond words, beyond time. Yet my words keep bubbling up, Begging to be spoken. Attempting without fruit to sway my Love toward the light, before falling to the earth, impotent. Utterly inadequate to describe desire’s depth. You offer solace in desire’s assured fulfillment; Yet you shield from view the complete picture of your perfectly-woven tapestry, unwilling to extol in advance the hour desire’s bell will toll. The sharp pain of longing slices my heart, reveals my humanity, A blessing and a curse: your frozen dagger of Time.
