    Karen, de Profundis

    Post by Admin on Tue May 04, 2010 3:10 am


    From out of the depths and by your beautiful hair
    We pull you to our hearts
    Gone from us in a sickening blaze, a frightful glare
    And then the music starts.

    Your voice, it overshadows and forces us to care
    To gleam with tears so many years
    Upon your mausoleum the little birds stare
    Dumbfounded by our blackest fears.

    How can we appreciate what you do from there?
    Only the perfect song in a music box
    How do we integrate what is surely despair?
    We slip and stumble through the rocks.

    Glorious Karen, saint to many everywhere!
    Antidote to poisons that curdle the living
    Port in a storm that is drowning all that’s fair
    Your strong, smiling, gospel-pure giving.

    How the days go by, then the years tear
    At us with the fury of harpies at our death
    At our sinking successes and failures bare
    While you draw in another lost breath.

    We did so want to save you from the glare
    Of being the star despite your mother
    Who wanted only, who did wrongly dare
    To crush you for the sake of your brother.

    I’ll never find your fragile, happy stare
    When the world has us down, as you sang
    Your charming pose on a velvety chair
    All curled up like a hidden fang.

    I cry to you, Karen, when night’s black bear
    Growls and feeds on the weakest minute
    On a clock at whose hands I over-stare
    For the times I find I am in it.

    Resurrect us, Karen, float us in the air
    That we may soar as you once soared
    That we may take the sweet, sweet music where
    The soul lies crumpled, gored.

    Your blessing is quiet whilst others blare
    Your magic propped up for us again
    That celestial wind woven by the pair:
    Brother and sister – remember when?

    We, too, will pass, crawl into the lair
    Crawl to sleep without any dreaming
    Fall to nothingness, for another spare
    Will appear as the infant screaming.

    I lament your horrific, spectacular share
    Of life lived confused and unknown
    Then I celebrate all manner of Karen and stare
    At the light when utterly alone.

    Long live Karen! Long live your frère!
    As he continues unabated but inert
    Twilight laughs at our hobbled mare
    But you deliver us from hard hurt.
