On Darkened sea's I've set my sails
I've searched in to the pits of hell
Request a meeting from the thrown
For Beauty, I have never known

The ocean with her silver fist
Taunts me with a crimson kiss
Christened by her bloody mist
Salvation she brings now

Her waves bare down and curse at me
Feeding more insanity
Sails near gone, by winded rage
Now lay upon a darkened stage

As lightening strikes out from the sky
thunder plays a lullaby
Blowing kisses to her crimson tied
Closer to its flash I slide

As far away it seems, I am
I hear a song brought by the wind
It beckons from within the pit
Its voice cry's out from speechless lips

No ore's, or sails to set again
I drift to the song by guided wind
As water gushes in the cracks
There is no way of turning back

My tiny ship it turns and creaks
Nothing left for me to keep
Pictures, through my mind do creep
As her port turns to the sky

Still I try to stay afloat
Splashing in her crimson coat
I feel her grab around my waist
Pulling me to her cold embrace

As her red wine fill's my throat
Eyes wide open, as I choke
I look in to her eyes and see
Beauty in eternity

Tori 99

---------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------I linger yet with Nature, for the night
Hath been to me a more familiar face
than that of man: and in her starry shade
of dim and solitary loveliness
I learn'd the language of another world.
Lord Byron
