She Is (a revision)

Always with you
and Never near you
the Only Truth
you cover with lies

the Caged Pearl
you cannot release
the Collateral Damage
you dare not trigger

the Unsullied Air
you cannot breathe
the Holy Muse
you cannot honour

All you love
and Nothing you can
the If Only
and the Must Not

the Blood that turns Blue
to Indelible Indigo
the stainless Captive
to your silver Lemniscate

the Pain
to which you cleave
the Joy
you push away

the Beginning
with no end
the End
with no beginning

Forever
and Never
Never
and Forever 

Despair
and Hope
Hope
and Despair

the Inexorable Loss
you (both) must bear
                                           Alone 

but what matter the words of a Mistress 

except
          perhaps

to another 
                      Mistress
