GOA96 – Legend

Guardians Of Atlanta 96

Up and up Amy trudged,
Her thoughts within her spinning.
She gathered all the strength she had
To try and stop her sinning.

Amy: “I’m not moving another muscle, Jezebel!
This has got to stop!
I’m done being your little puppet-thing!
I want to serve Marlynn’s God!”

For a moment, there was silence inside her mind,
As Jezebel contemplated a response.
An echoey laugh rose from her depths.

Jezebel: “Your destiny is ensconced.
There is no way out, small one,
Though you fight with all your might,
I will be back to Harbingella tonight.”

Amy’s mind thrashed at the sound of the name,
And the others screamed in her ears.
Things like: “No! It may never be!”, ”Stop this right now!”,
And Amy’s eyes streamed hot tears.

Jezebel: “Oh, that’s right, you don’t know what will happen.
Well let me put your mind at ease.
I have a legend, it has my form in it.
It’s somewhat like a disease.
When people touch my legendary anklet
They turn into me.
All other personalities are cast out.
And then you will be free.”

Amy: “Where will I be if not in my body?”

Jezebel: “Who said this was yours to start with?
Couldn’t it be Diana’s? Mary’s? Or Belle’s?
Or Britney’s if you think about it?
You are nothing more than a quirk in a body
Designed to house what is me.
You are not a person, you do not have a soul.
Please, stop your foolish trickery.
you’re only fooling yourself if you think-
That that Freakshow could ever love you.
You’re nothing but dust. I am a legend.
And I live forever anew.”

Amy screamed and tried to fight
But Jezebel once more overtook,
The control of their body from Amy’s grasp
And pressed to the Mountain’s overlook.
