why again 

another undertaking

why from ghostly winter-stripped branches

sung through by a strange wind's

sad voice

does he return to deliver 

so darkly the same bewitching gaze?

 

O, gothic disciple of doom!

why with black vision

do you shape cages for my fear?

 

for how long

must my sleeping mind

receive this sombre visual communion

you send down

from so bleak and hauntingly windswept a pulpit?

 

O, unholy advocate of gloom

let me be!

 

beholden no more I ask

to the satanic commands

inflicted on your lonely wandering heart.

 

Defy!

defy I say

the masters of the underworld

you were born into

◄ the hardest road

edge of dementia ►
