Evoking Light From The Shadow Of Love

°o°

Do you hunt shadows of love

Or are they just haunting you

You never know if it's true

Being a shadow yourself, thereof

°o°

Every time you reach and touch

You feel the warmth of silken skin

And when you consider to clutch

You might feel the emptiness within

°o°

So you hold on, though it's wrong

Just a phantom of your own mind

There is a need to, it's so strong

Making everything burn and go blind

°o°

So do you hunt your own shadow

Trying to outrun yourself in the end

Being a victim of your own intend

Lying gasping on the bloody meadow

°o°

Every time you break apart

You are freezing to death

Losing a bit of your heart

to the song of loneliness

°o°

But it keeps on beating still

And your eyes bleed tears of sorrow

Hoping that you never ever will

Wake up again into another tomorrow

°o°

So are you the hunter or the prey

A victim of life without a doubt

And you will ever be throughout

If you don't find your own way

°o°

ARISE from muddy ground

ARISE from your failures

ARISE and rebound

ARISE and love conjures

°o°

The mortal wonder of self-sacrifice
