The streams wake upon a lucid dream, where I imbibe to slake my parched lust, and where the breeze upon my brow gently traces its admonition for my trespasses.
Here, it is where the fallen amass and gather at the banks, so clear is the water of life that perdition is seen, awaiting just below.
From the viewing-glass waters, reach out the wailing tendrils, the lost that bask on the warmth radiating from the innocent lamb.
A delightful endeavor, to bathe one’s sins within the lake of damnation, so close to the maw, the temptress whose fruit so saccharin, hangs low to the hungered hands.
It was the sweetest intonation, that from the lake came, my muse that called me into the wading, and drew me away with the ebbing.
And within my very lungs, brimming with sinful rhetoric, I drown though replete with repentance, amid feverish osculation on the lips of never more.
The warmth my dowry, I cede to you my love, and cold and entombed below the eve’s I be, but for a single melody.
The shade that cavorts from the mire, sweet frolic from the gloom, aghast the silhouette is mine, and careen my husk onto you.
Embrace the atramentous depth, so content with the amenity that was gifted to us, the cot from whence we shall rot.
Within my lucid dreaming, on an eve staked in disremembrance, t’was on the waters of Lethe we swam, and lost beneath the calmest wakes, into the deepest forest we wandered, into the misty fluora.
The unending black that adorns the treetops there, where the leaves whisper mockeries and the soil shouts disdain, no stars have ever set and no day has ever loved.
The mournful quiet feasts on your skin, hungered for your sanity, and the moments are as weighed as the penance for your sins.
So long has it been that beneath the waters guile we drowned, and within the wooded copse we have dwelled,
such sorrow causes the gentle waves, and in the wakes our mournful plea, awake us with your gentlest breeze.
In these waters wade ye not
for in the copse the lovers rot
the angels have long since wept
and in their wake the sins were kept
Into the mist such lust must go
and burdensome the endless woe
the fruit is bitter on one’s tongue
So rueful from the branches hung…
