I Weep Silent

Tomorrow, my gypsy charlatan
My fool, my blind lunatic
You will unhook the moon
Free the tranced mortals
From weaving dreams
Beneath the purple shadow of twilight

Tomorrow, forsaken man
Lunar ancient, siren soul
You will lie in cold caves
Prisoner of deluded desire
Bare of hope, comfortless
As death veils heaven
And bleed your lizardsong
On the western wind


Now love breaks

And I weep alone, groan alone
Sleepdancing to the edge
Of dying day, a haunting horror
Wrought with sorrow’s fever
A faded Eve, frail woman still
Fear drenched underneath dark stars
