silver glass, by melancholycoyote silver glass, by melancholycoyote
"What can you see on the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the Sea a pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home
And all will turn to silver glass
A light on the water, all souls pass

Hope fades into the world of night
Through shadows falling out of memory and time
Don't say we have come now to the end
White shores are calling, you and I will meet again
And you'll be here in my arms, just sleeping

-Into the West


--

My entry for Helovia's banner contest--a vague interpretation of the moon goddess in all her glory. :heart: Talk about last minute!
Into the West is such a beautiful, meaningful song about the next great adventure--death.
With these lyrics in mind, I wanted to create something dark and beautiful, something enchanting and dangerous.
Because we all know the moon goddess is secretly plotting to take over the world.
