Sleep so deep it never ends
Wrap me in your dark arms
Give me your lovers kiss
Remove me from this house of distorted images
Let me sink into your softness
No one left to disappoint
Not even myself
Will you keep your promises?
Are you my inevitable companion?
Do my paths lead to your boudoir?
Will you betray me?
Will I be brought to the gates of hell
by you who masquerades as my lover?
I hold hold myself back
for a while longer
Allowing myself to be lifted
Seeking light instead
Feeling it's warmth on my face
Renewing my strength
Laughter bubbling from a place long forgotten
Desire to disappear fading
Listen to me singing
Yesterday is not today
I am still me and yet I am far from the same
I now wish to reside in the light
You no longer seduce me
For we were never meant to lovers
