    and so you left us
    jaded and gaunt, some september
    wilted with the seasons
    but hidden inside the delusion
    i saw you eyes, somewhere

    devoid of death
    the aura poises amidst (the storm)
    in solid tears i linger
    a parlour glade, moonlit sorrow

    lonely resting pools
    relics of the moon-dogged lake
    whisper: "all your words are missgiven"

    am i like them?
    those who mourn and turn away
    those who would give anything
    to see you again
    if only for another second

    your face was, like the photograph
    painted white
    we did not speak very often about it
    what does it matter now?

    cloak of autumn shroud
    i gaze, dim ricochet of stars
    i reckon it is time for me to leave

    you sleep in the light
    yet the night and the silent water
    still so dark
