Demon's Odium

Extending far beyond the darkest night
Passing through deep gullies and narrow holes
Sweetly impairing him from deep within
Cry of a shattered soul echoing miles away

Within a cold glass-room, helpless
Spiraling deep down into despair
Spent days, heartless, locked in blankness
Eyes of a shattered soul feeble with unrest

Once there existed a heaven
And warmth of divine affection
Now surrounded by walls of fear
Frozen mirror appears reflection-less

Pushed off from the highest peak
Landing down heart first
Faster, deeper, as pain grows unremittingly 
But there seems to be no end

Raging sky, pouring fire
Rumbling with immense might
The journey is impossible
Every drop burns like those memories created

The door of solitude before his eyes
And that is the only way the road follows
There is no turning back
Every escape has been burnt

So when I stood here and gave you everything
I really never asked for anything, nothing
Yet, you pushed me down the cliff
What is it that I missed?

The Winter Rose has faded and left with nothing but burning scars…
