She was only sixteen

when she left,

O Angel & sweet Muse-

(You were intoxication and silk)

The midnoon sun shone

down soft & warm

& good & glorious

upon us, we hapless and

low in the vast

dark array

O Heaven-

She has left too soon

and has come to you

and we are cruel severed

scarringly from that

cool young flower: Beauty

And we are alone

w/lament

and we are alone

w/rotten weeping

and we are alone

w/heartache

and sorrow and

despair

and comfortless

dreams

(We are alone

w/out you,

O damask perfumed soul-)

It was her cool jewelled

smile and syrup eyes

that would possess you,

finesse & bless you

(She was wine

The rest was obsession)

We ran the Night, wildly,

like satyrs or satans

and there was no fear

and no death

We crept through shadows

and nightmares

and darkened streets

surreptitiously

and we laughed

maniacally

at pain

We knew only joy and the

great freedom of Discovery

We stormed the city like

insane bandits and baited the

cops w/daredevilry,

lawlessness

Yeah, she was majesty

and triumph and she

was soulful

and fine

She was yet still a babe

when she went off to that

other world. She was young

and all the world awaited

her, like a feast

Her life here was our honor

and we can only exalt her

w/love

passion

song

II.

When you left us, dear sister and friend,

a part of you stayed behind so we wouldn't

forget, regret or forlorn. Your memory is

still warm in our hearts and we shall love

and remember you, always.

O young princess & aethyr,

you were stealth and strength

and style

I shall miss you, always
