I Stay Still

Photo Credit Marina Abramovic and Ulay, Rest Energy, 1980

I was in front of a man

he was my life

and I saw the knight

raising up his steel knife,


his jaw tight,

his blue eyes in disguise

it felt it was all right

l just needed to be nice


ln the background

of that spectacular sight

l disappeared, for the fright

could not flight, nor fight


paralyzed

we both knew deep down

I should have had run,

but where had we already gone?


the soul only possibly could,

pull up a clue

for my intense desire

to heal that wound


I believed it was only an illusion,

impossible for a material person

but it is true, pain cures


and l stay still now

far away from you
