Amore Nihil Mollius, Nihil Violentius

This will be the fortuitous night When her restless spirit fully takes flight In all four winds that fail to slow Under the waning reflective moonlight. They met under the delight of Luna’s soft glow Swimming bare in warm waters amid a lovely meadow In a déjà vu frolic touched only by heart’s desire Somewhere behind the blind and beyond the unknown below The dying embers of life within her prior On the days with the loudest silence stood by her Echoing in yesterday, no longer sleeping in the nowhere void For her shadow now glows in his path’s fire Tempted by winter’s falling breath enjoyed Chilling her delicate skin, the intimate waiting thus destroyed The whirling wind dies in a mid-dance farewell An autumn flame becomes a lover’s grave to avoid The fettered couple will soon be set free from their harrowed cell A once-lost saga of starlight’s only voyaged hell She has been swept away in death’s lingering dance With a last glance in his direction, the end of her silenced knell
