In Boredoms silence

In boredoms silence I was woken,

by words inside me yet unspoken.

For thememories long forgotten,

of the past life for the one forsaken.

The girl of my dreams,

of my past and long gone present.

Before my royalty,

she was but a peasant.

But a peasant of extreme beauty,

Long radiant hair that shone like stars,

her deep blue eyes twinkled like diamonds,

her lips so soft and her scent somewhat fruity,

her laughter like a twilight dream,

but now it seems,

that the lord above did not want our love to be.

As I amstill haunted by her piecing screams,

that lasted well into the night.

Her tombstone rests on hollow ground,

where nothing moves nor makes a sound.

Apart from that of a young man with a broken heart,

now a projection of an old mans past,

an old man with an ice cold heart,

all his life searching for that missing part.
