Bittery Sweet - Lyrics by Silent Stream Of Godless Elegy

Flower black like my Blood
Flowering in my Heart
Heavily bowed to Ground
I feel smell of Cold
Picture rumpled in Memory
Nude of Woman who I Knowlovely Nakedness of Feelingsperfect Colours of Shapes
I'm standing face to face to this Nakedness
Seabreeze is worming through my Hair
I'm flying away to distant Lands of Feelingswhich are Spreading all over My Body
I'm watching the Sunset
Dead and Silent Glare
Rays are sliding on Wavesthey don't Reach Coast
Sea is splitting my Thoughtsto Thousand Pieces by a Cliffincoherent Shapes of Clouds
I'm Prisoner
I'm standing face to face...
