Was there ever a moment you didn't know
felt the beat of every last drop of blood
that poured from these veins beguiled
To all I thought and dreamt was you.
Do you hear the last vestige of hope
that beats, no pounds so hard at your door
begging upon it last breath the only meaning
That winged all essence upon it sore.
I have died many times, faded to Hades
where the engulfing moment bore away all
left empty to any fringe of hope for the morrow
I peered into the depths of all I wish I could deny.
Oh fade fast sweet life,
take hold this rotten root of being
wash it deep in the pits of its own decay
And let life wedge the pits of disarray.
There's no dream, no hope, no reason
no quest for anything beyond the deed of fate
just a whimper of what once was
Lost upon the inscription that is far long late
I hesitate upon the entrance
wait the abode to draw deep and cling
wish away the tears and sorrow
Here I await heaven's gate.
