~ Power Over You ~

There's a silence.
It's hanging in the air.
Say your right words,
Oh, clearly, if you dare.

I have the power
To make your dreams come true.
Yes, I have power
Over you.

And I will take from you
That which you claim
To wish to lack.
What would you go through
To make your way
To get it back?

Here is the moment
In which the choice is made.
Such a sweet tremble...
That your voice betrayed.

Turn back, Sarah.
Turn back, before it's too late.
There is no winning in this.
I, too, am resigned to that fate.

Oh, you cower.
I was frightening. Yes, it's true.
I have such power
Over you.

Such a pity...
It's further than you think.
Time is short,
And things can change each time you blink.

What would you give?
What do you say?
Do you have what it takes?
How can I live
This every day?
How about upping the stakes?

Don't try me.
Don't defy me.

Deny my power,
But you know it's true...
That I have power
Over you.

It's not fair?
You say that so often.
I wonder what you basis for comparison is.
Did you honestly expect that I would play nice?

Don't you dare.
Your big eyes won't make me soften.
Solving the labyrinth is a piece of cake, is it?
Let's see how you enjoy this little slice!

Oh, come now, Sarah.
Should have given up by now.
Come join this dance.
Concede.  Advance.
Accept.  Open.  Allow.

Pretty, but sour.
It's not fair what I've put you through,
Though it's my power
Over you.

Look inside.
Though it might sound implausible,
I can show you your dreams...
In a world
Where everything seems possible
And nothing is what it seems.

I'll be here, waiting,
Your defeat,
But though it hurts like hell,
I'll love you twice as well,
When next we meet.

I see your glower.
You feign as if you never knew
That I have power
Over you.

Sarah, Beware.
Sarah, behave.
You needn't be so brave.
Just love me, fear me,
Do as I say,
And I will be your slave.

- - -
Look at what I'm offering you.
The cost of everything
Is everything,
But I will be paying, too.

I ask for so little,
And I have so little left to give.
I can't live within you,
But without you is no way to live.

Poisonous flower,
You've long spelled my impending doom.
But who has power
Over whom?

By thirteenth hour,
You'll have believed your lie is true:
I have no power
Over you.

This is a poem as said by Jareth. I'm curious to know if it's alright. It's been a while since I have posted anything.

Boring Part: I don't own Labyrinth, Jareth, Jim Henson, Sarah, Crystals, Crystal Balls, words (your right ones, or otherwise), 13 hours, David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly, or anything else mentioned or hinted at in this poem.

Thank you! It was a bit of a challenge, but I love the film so very much, and I just had to play with it.
