The Calling
by battousai24 (Chi Samaniego)

The time is now...
I can hear the voices echoing in this dark room
It's calling me...
To come, to let go, to succumb to fate

I can hear it drawing nearer
I can almost feel its icy breath
I can almost taste it...
It's finally here

The raven is on the window sill
Looking at me with its horrid stare
Watching, waiting, wanting...
For me to give in to what should be

But how come so soon?
Why so sudden?
I'm ready, I'm sure...

But how come I feel this way?
Why so sad?
I'm not ready, I wasn't sure...

One last smile...
One last tear...
One last kiss...
One last embrace...

In those loving arms, I wish to be
I don't want to be in the arms of Death
No, not yet...
To stay is what I desire...
With my love, my happiness, my Angel, my lily

Please do not kiss me
No, not with those lips
So cold, so blank... so devoid of love
I cannot bear this
Not yet...
I wish for more time

The years have passed by so fast
I haven't even done what I ought to do
To rebuild the bridges that have burned down,
to light the fire that has gone out,
to relive it once more...
Even in a dream

But that is not it...
I do not stay for that
I stay for the Angel who remained with me
All this time, just with me...
Through all the pain, the sorrow, the hatred in me
that I have brought upon her

Yes, I stay for this lost Angel...
For this Angel that has strayed
and has entered the life of a Forsaken that is I...
I remain here, in this place, for my love...
Who once was nothing but a dream...
A dream that I couldn't comprehend

Now I understand...
But I'm not sure

I can see it...
But only vaguely

And then now...

Darkness.

Is this the end?

Now?
But I wished to stay, not leave
I wished to live more, to hold on...

Death, let go of me...
Please...
I beg of you

Your kiss, let it wait...
Your arms, please let go...
Let them wait as well

I will come to you when I'm ready
Soon, yes, very soon...
But long enough for me to be with my Angel

Let me stay...
Let me hold on...
Let me love, care and even hurt...
Let me feel it all

For now, let me sleep and let me wake in the morning
Let me go for now

I will surely come to you when you call out to me in the future
Wait a while...
It will be soon

For now, let the kiss be from my Angel
Let the arms that I fall asleep in be hers
Let the voice be sweet, not cold and empty

Let me go... for now
It is not my time

In a few years...
Yes, it will be...
It will be soon...
It will be my time...

But for now, you wait...
Watch and wait patiently...

Time will go by quickly...
I will succumb soon...
To you, yes, only you...
Just wait...

I will die...
For you...
With you...
In you...

I promise.
