A Distant Bell
by Kate Saundby

The sequel to A Circle of Arcs, this fast-moving historical time travel has been likened to riding a kayak through the rapids. If you were blind and could only see in..

Itís funny how things change
Like the wind
Now you know my name
Turned on by my so-called fame
But your face stays the same
Telling a thousand truths
With every adoring look

But Iím still me
The one you didnít wanna be
Iím still me
The nameless nobody from a nameless street
I didnít want to speak to you then
And I donít want to now

Clinging to me like a weakling child
There you watch
Frightened and lost
Tears burning a hole in your cheeks
Oh but please cant you see
That itís still really me?

Canít see why I had to change
In your misty, longing eyes
But Iím still me
Thereís no one else I can possibly be
You take my truths and bend them into
Whatever shapes you please

Silent whispers echo round the room
I donít want your counterfeit good wishes
Why donít you go bother
Some other idiot instead?

I see you watch from a distance
Feel every shred of your pain
Every prayer for an apocalyptic rain
And return to how things were
I never wanted to play
This stupid fucking game

Carbon dioxide smiles
Suffocate the air around me
I turn around to face you
So pale, tired, empty
But you donít even seem to notice
At least before, I knew who I was
Not even sure now
If this is still meÖ

Canít determine who I am anymore
My feelings and words a contradiction
Could it be Iím losing this addiction?
People I thought I knew
Have changed beyond recognition
And you
Are lost in the midst of my insanity

The world has become an illusion
And I canít hold on anymore
With a head so twisted and fingers broken
My final soft words are spoken
As I scrawl on my wall
A message in blood to be seen by all
