Gates And Barriers Gone - Poem by Charles Chaim Wax

Frannie shuffled into Meng’s
face weary, heart wearier still
pursued.
Harry smiling saying,
“Today you shine like a star.”
Harry always ready to uplift a soul
if he could.
“Indeed, ” I said
wanting the same in his presence.
Frannie, eyes singing for now said,
“When you Display
everybody loves you.
Your spirit and body feels free
and a million people will follow you
and never leave you.
It’s a true image.”
“I know, ” whispered Harry.
Frannie went on, eyes shifting
remembering, terror tumbling in,
“But there’s things against you.
like the 666 Beast is against you
with Mental Talk.
Terrible talking
and the Beast has many heads
all talking Mental Talk
at the same time.
Swollen tear heads.
Fetish heads
telling you sweet things
so you’ll go
to their Fetish rooms
filled with knives and chains.
I don’t have a chance.”
“The great great truth
is always near, ” said Harry
gazing into Frannie’s eyes
“Indeed, ” I said.
“The Fetish men torment me, ” she said.
“A small matter, ” said Harry.
Silence.
Then, “Bernstein? ”
“I don’t know, Harry.”
“We are here
we are in pain
and more pain will follow
I know this
and I know the Beast
in the night
calls my name
but I call another name.”
“Who? ” asked Frannie.
“My own.”
