Returned from a hibernal dream
No longer by my side

Melinda reflected in shafts
Met the earth in silence
White faced, haggard grin
With a halo of bitter disease

Clenched fist from the beautiful pain
Darkness reared its head
Took control, claiming my flesh

Choking in warm ponds of blood
Drained from strength, flickering breath
Came with the moon
Flanked and barred in destiny's end

Starlit shadows on the wall
From the bowels of sin
