What Is To Be Exacted

What is to be exacted
standing in the place of privilege
Power to even request
Even when it is not a request
What price are you asking

What is the value to one
Who by the burning soul's
Desire is life itself the will
To become more than the body
Of light and sound when all words fail

What pound of flesh for your glimpse
Even as you hold the key to freedom
Offering as if there was a choice
Oh the longing to unlock the sweet bird
To let her wings cut the air and song finally be free

Some who saw said it was romantic
Others were shocked at the outright coercion
Would you have given your flesh to free your heart
Would you have held the key while he held your body to his
knowing all along what is to be exacted
