Midnight DawnMy heart played an endless requiem...More Like This
I was slowly marching step after step;
Each of them was a broken promise, an unfulfilled wish...burdens of the past.
Up the tower I went, but who could know when the stair would break and fall.
Blind by a veil, eternal frost in my eyes.
I was aware of the starving ocean and its violent waves against the damaged ivory structure;
I could not escape the flood.
Wandering around the darkened tower, I saw black roses grow around the top.
Each petal was a fragment of a gone heart:
as black as sorrow, as black as mourning, as black as loss.
Kissing their icy petals stained my lips with nostalgic ink...
Inside, the walls were full of giant steel thorns, pointing at me.
There was a storm of fears, angry shadows, looking at me.
They would not stop, they went beyond my frozen hands.
Like hammers, turning my soul into dust, cracking and shattering my soul of glass.
I could barely protect myself from the weather...
my shelter became my prison... is it the end
