Doctor Who: Two Legacies (the Emily Dickinson remix)

Remix: Two Legacies (the Emily Dickinson remix) [Jack, Ten, Martha, 139 words, rated G], by clocketpatch

It was not death, for I stood up,
And all the dead lie down.

And you live on, for I stood up,

The open watch winds down.

When everything that ticked has stopped
And space stares all around,

I’ll take my chances with the watch and let your arc fall down.

And you will live forever, even if I, the host, must change or die. There is no unjust immortality for the likes of you, now I.

Haisel is not a doctor – those fates she learned to fear – and I am not the Doctor, but soon the arc will shine. Our masks seared to our faces, as you imagine that you’re fine.

It was not death, because I took you,

And now I’m inside the watch.

I am not myself, don’t judge me.

Only live and hold me close.
