Of these shadows that haunt me
I can say only this
As I turn and I twist
In pain or joy
I know not which
As the sullen sands draw to an end
And life is left
To itself fend
And lush green fields decline once more
Into the light
These shadows pour
And calm dark dusk flows from the night
Giving way
To bare the night
And the goddess’ arms open to take
Away the pain
And our mistake
Of these shadows that haunt me
I can say only this
As I turn and twist
In fear or lust
I know not which
But of all of this
I find a way
To find a place
Where I can sit
So let these shades engulf me.
