The light burns on
Holding tears on a wrinkled leaf,
I stood by the mystic edge of the sea.
Heard whispers in the golden garments,
That Autumn herself had shed for me.
Silent winds rippled on the water....
My hand faltered, I froze in time...
Captured the world's essence in a flickering instant,
As my mind waded through Nature's intricate design.
The thorn through my soul shoved in deeper,
I bled out drops only I could see.
Betrayed by my own faith, I stood unwavered now,
This wasn't the way they said it would be.
Phrases hurtling right through my brain,
Each one hit me with a sickening wrench.
My eyes wide shut, the sky brightly dark,
Humanity's ever-so-famous inglorious stench.
Purple rain dashed down on me;
Blue flames, to take my soul, suffice.
A blinding flash in time, a whisper unheard,
...........And I waited for my final sacrifice.
Windswept I stood, a prodigal son of Time,
A cloak of mist heralding the dawn....
Far in the distance, a Lighthouse sweeps its beam,
As i curl into darkness, the light burns on.
