Joining

©1994 by Steve Macdonald

 

I am a lonely man
Single and unique
Destined for a greater life
Much deeper, more complete.
Joining is and always was
The reason to exist
I was a contented man
'Til they dropped me from their list-

Who do you think you are?
Telling me I won't get far?
Saying I was meant to be happy
All alone.
Who do you think you are?
I'm unacceptable- now it's war.
I am destined to be Joined.
I am destined to be Joined.

I was sent away
Banished from Desire.
Told to be content
But my need burns ever higher.
There is my One
At a lonely far off post.
Now wait for the proper time
To force my way to Host.

Who do you think you are?
Telling me I won't get far?
Saying I was meant to be happy
All alone.
Who do you think you are?
I'm unacceptable- now it's war.
I am destined to be Joined.
I was destined to be Joined.

Memory, Knowledge
Seven lifetimes deep.
All here, all mine
Now the Guest is mine to keep.
I need for no one
I can even lie.
I'll fly through the galaxy
I'm Joined now 'til I die.

Who do you think you are?
Telling me I won't get far?
Saying I was meant to be happy
All alone.
Who do you think you are?
You told me no, but I won the war.
I was destined to be Joined.
I was destined to be Joined.

Betrayal, deadly pain
Done to me by friends.
I was complete then
Now the pain will never end.
I was so full then
And oh, so empty now-
But I can't quite remember
All gone- I'm not sure how.

Who do you think you are?
Telling me I won't get far?
Saying I was meant to be happy
All alone.
Who do you think you are?
You told me no, but I won the war.
I was destined to be Joined.
I was destined to be Joined.
