My Selene

Album: Reckoning Night (2004)
  • Nocturnal poetry
    Dressed in the whitest silver you'd smile at me
    Every night I wait for my sweet Selene

    But still

    Solitude's upon my skin
    A life that's bound by the chains of reality
    Would you let me your Endymion

    I would
    Bathe in your moonlight and slumber in peace
    Enchanted by your kiss in forever sleep

    But until we unite
    I live for that night
    Wait for time
    Two souls entwine

    In the break of new dawn
    My hope is forlorn
    Shadows they will fade
    Without you

    Serene and silent sky
    Rays of moon dancing with the tide
    A perfect sight, a world divine

    And I

    The loneliest child alive
    Always waiting, searching for my rhyme
    I'm still alone in the dead of night

    Silent I lie with a smile on my face
    appearance deceives and the silence betrays

    As I wait for the time
    My dream comes alive
    Always out of sight
    But never out of mind

    And under waning moon
    Still I long for you
    Alone against the light
    Solitude am I

    In the end I'm enslaved by my dream
    In the end there's no soul who'd bleed for me

    Hidden from daylight sealed in my cave
    Trapped in a dream that is slowly turning to nightmare,
    Where I'm all alone
    Venial is like when you're but a dream
    The book is still open the pages as empty as me

    I cling to a hope that's beginning to fade
    Trying to break, the desolation I hate

    But until we unite
    I live for that night
    Wait for time
    Two souls entwine

    In the break of new dawn
    My hope is forlorn
    We will never meet
    Only misery and me

    This my final call
    My even fall
    Drowning into time
    I become the night

    By the light of new die
    I'll fade away
    Reality cuts deep
    Would you bleed with me
