She knew even then that she would not be the one

Shizuka danced
and sang and did not care
what else was taken from her because she had
and her memories were of
her own

When she woke Him in the dark she knew
even then that He would
leave her,
that she would
not be
the one to climb
the mountain paths at His side

And the gods again told her "No",
took from her all
but her
and she held the little body
of sorrow and
spat into the wind.
