Melancolia

Pathology of sadness
Anatomy of mourning.
To wake and see the dawn as a warning.
End of the day is the end of the dream
Confronting reality
Through the curtain of sleep.
Pathology of sadness
Alchemical solutions
Turn gold to lead 
and green to red.
Autopsy of a bad day
Find the tumor that takes the colour away.
