Over at [livejournal.com profile] sammessiah's AntiChristmas 2010 fic meme, [personal profile] dreamlittleyo expressed a desire for poetry. Then this happened. It's a décima, which is forty-four eight-syllable lines, four ten-line stanzas (with breaks between lines four and five) preceded by a four-line stanza, and the lines in that four-line stanza have to occur elsewhere in the poem.

I hate [personal profile] dreamlittleyo and I hate Wikipedia. I just want that on record.

Sam hears Dean screaming in his dreams
When Dean's soul is burning in hell.
He does not draw a breath until
Dean breathes again, heart beating strong.

Once two souls have joined together,
Separation will destroy them.
The knife between Sam's vertebrae
Hurts; Dean's heart shattering hurts worse.

Sam's heart does not beat; nor does Dean's.
He does not draw a breath until
Sam breathes again, heart beating strong.
Dean has been dying since the day
He was born. Now he knows the hour.
Sam survived Stanford. He'll be fine.

"Keep fighting. Take care of my wheels."
"I can't do this alone." "Yes, you
"Can." "Yeah, well, I don't want to." But
Now Sam is more alone than ever.

He hears Dean screaming in his dreams.
Calling for Sam, who can't answer.
He'll tear hell apart if he must,
Starting with Ruby. She didn't help.
He's demon-touched. Demonspawn. There
Must be some way he can use that.

Like flipping switches, Ava said.
What does it profit a man to
Gain the whole world and lose his soul?
But Sam's soul is burning in hell.

Telekinesis. Clairvoyance.
Humans must obey him. Demons
Cannot hide from him anymore.
Demons begin coming to him.
They like this world as is. If he
Protects them, they'll serve him gladly.

One of Sam's loyal ones tracks down
The crossroads demon who dealt with
Bela Talbot. He has the Colt.
Sam can still cross iron with ease.

Sam pulls his soul loose from his flesh
And follows the sound of Dean's voice.
So much power here; all his now.
Alastair burns. Lucifer screams.
Sam and Dean wake, alive and free.
Hell and earth, theirs for the taking.
