Alabaster

He is haunted by her alabaster apparition;

she who cries for a freedom that cannot be named

and begs for a mercy that cannot be given.

How can he give solace, when she is neither here, nor there?

How can he give rest to a soul, who cannot sleep?

How can he guide her to a light, that she cannot see?
