When I Look Into Your Eyes

by Shadow

" Xena, wake up and look around you.

The little innocent Gabrielle is dead

and there is no getting her back. "

 

For the first time,
when I look into your eyes,
I see my own reflection.
The rage... The hate...
It is all so familiar.
I see my tortured half.


For the first time,
when I look into your eyes,
I see the monster within.
Seeking for revenge...
thirsting for vengeance...
I battled this monster once...
and lost everything in the process.
How can I win this round?

 

For the fist time,
when I look into your eyes
I see the light within them are gone.
Only pain... Only grieve... remain.
How many men I sent to Hades?
How many souls I destroyed in the path?
Now I add one more to my collection...
your soul, you heart.

 

For the first time,
when I look into your eyes,
I see a hopeless battle.
" Donít you ever change, Gabrielle,
I like you just the way you are. "
But now the thing I hold precious is gone...
You are gone.

 

For the first time,
when I look into your eyes.
I see the emptiness staring back at me.
Enough to break my heart...
Enough to shatter my soul...
Is the little, innocent Gabrielle dead?
Is there no way of getting her back?
Your coldness confirms the answer.

 

For the first time,
when I look into your eyes,
I see Callistoís smiling.
Dancing for her victory...
laughing at her success...
She had won after all.
She killed my soul...

"If anyoneís listening,
You know I am not much for praying,
but I donít know what else to do.
I was ready to give up once,
and Gabrielle came into my life.
Please donít let that light that shines on her face go out.
I couldnít stand the darkness that will follow. "
