Crippled twilight lines the edges of my room

Creeping along the walls, threading, twisting

In waking sound, and a light being kept

I can feel myself beginning to shake

And then the pendulum begins its round

The quiet storm of my heart begins to wake

And here, my sanctuary's unstoppable armor cracks

Eyes, eyes flowing with emotion

The emotion that could

The emotion that stares from a shaken castle

Out its windows…the light begins

Castle, so treasured, full of gem

Why do you feel such agony?

Why is the pain still spiraling?

It's because you're still searching.

It's because there's still something out there.

Until it's found, the lights will still dwell

The castle will still stand strong,

And the twilight will still protect me.
