Lyrics & Poetry: Ethereal Reverie

572

Due to a period of time where I thought this blog was going to end, most of my lyrics and poetry were removed. I will be re-posting them here, starting with one of my favorites, Ethereal Reverie.

And I appeared as a curtain

She saw through me

Blind to every part of my form

Why shouldn’t she suffer from the sight of me

 

With hands of glass

Transparent heart

I reach out

But only ensnare the void

 

My essence fills the room

Yet she sees only beyond me

A shade of a man

Only worth the chain that I wear

 

Shackles ring across the windowsill

Reminding me of the ideals of yore

They are all that bind me from my hate

I am but a memory, a ghost

A fragment of a dream

Long since forgotten

 

She sat within the bile she wrought

Nay, no forgiveness was sought

My only wish now is to sever these ties

A reverie that feeds to me such wonderful lies

 

I steer my spirit toward the horizon

Long do I, for the sight of mountains, of oceans

Take me away from this haunt

Close off this soul

From further dismay
