Forward, and headlong
I knew it was day again

There was a shift in the dark mutterings of the Devil,

Light On the Devil's Chord - Day 12

Their scattered, foreign words and wails retching their say
I listened, almost mesmerized,
Pulverized

“Come,” Said he,
With threatening authority

Upwards, higher than the balcony from which we...

It will be wintertime very soon
Here comes the evening moon
Gradually, we'll be shining like the sun
Eventually, you and I will be made as one

But then its gone.
Like it was never even there.
