Her own head turned with mine, fixed me with dialated eyes.

That alone chilled my blood.

Her voice came at me like an echo in the dark.

Now there is only this loneliness I have to wear like skin.

Is this an awakening?

Or merely my last breath?

No longer real, inside this dark realm in which I'm lost,

I awaken in the terrible moonlight, alone.

Now there is only this loneliness I have to wear like skin.

I could forsee your departure, but I still only wanted to hold you,

but not as a prisoner,

I wish I could reverse the spell of death, and hide you beneath my skin.
