Drawn,
and so it begins,
for she to come, the siren,
the hunt,
held, driven
to follow and to part.

Rather feast,
bold,
towards thunder
though feet under
water
up against thoughts,
and again forward
seeking.

And so we beat on,
upon us,
and against all odds
to fall for.
One build upon,
another,
to come and forge.
