I have lived an eternity.
Innumerable ships have sunk in
my eyes, drying my tears.
Fanciful clouds have faded into shapes,
unburdened by the pangs of time and love.
But, I have smothered my grief in the
cruellest hands of the night, where
stars sing elegies to my deafened ears.
I swallow gasps of despair to
suffice the hunger of my longing soul.
The tides of the sea which carry your smell,
kisses my soul as I feel cold.
Through all the rugged paths I travel, I
see footprints of you nearing me
Only in distance.
My sleep is your paradise,
You walk into my dreams ravishing my soul;
In the deadly night's communion,
I parch pastures grey with destitute.
Amidst the dark, when the vampires defy
the rules of the land,
I dig memories that have long ago got rotten.
