Blurred figures dissolve the night,
Lost, lost together.

They braved the blistering hurricaines,
That swept, sizzling into souls naive.
Is it really better to have loved and lost?
And what honour lies in the destitute,
Resolute few, they are, whose faith
Can storm with mighty resilience
The palace of the sky.
Faith that love is. Mere self-delusion
Or vision the mundane can never possess?
While they with insolent folly do fiddle,
Ferocious defenders of heartsong pure
Rage, and rage to find a cure.
This transcendental maladie
The boulder to beat Hercules,
By charging the soul with ecstatic fright,
And vanquishing day, as fate fast brings night.

Distinct shadows bring credence to day.
Alone, alone together.
