I wonder within a long walk,
This arduous journey of mine,
Painful steps trace back to my dark dungeon,
To a blooming meadow of maroon roses we meet,
Tedious singing charms are all I have until we finally greet.
Black bats flutter in under my gaze,
Night air bites away at my pale cratered face,
From the dark crystal ceiling above I wonder of you,
Never have I held something so dear, a sky mirroring the ocean blue.
Warm haze envelops me,
A bright light is coming from behind, burning colors threaten me upon the black sea,
The cold fades away leaving me breathless as I greet you today,
Slowly I begin to fall, in a silent plea I kiss you goodbye, I am tomorrow's castaway.
