Roselight sky, white snow tainted blue with shadows
The end of another beautiful drearyday's solemnity
Waiting for nightfall and a chance to fly away
From the binds that tie my soul down with consciousness
Damned clocks, damned crows, damned hospital rooms
Haunt my waking moments like needful succubi
Feeding on my life/ my mind/ my spirit/ my will
Upon everything that makes me human and alive
She looks angrily over my shoulder when I try to write words to another
Jealous even in death, she calls for me to join her
Tell me how a man's supposed to live like this
Even beneath the roselight sky in winter?
Tell me, dreaded crow, if i follow where do we go?
Past the world of ticking clocks and dripping IVs
Over dark open water through the damp and freezing sky
What is it you so anxiously wish me to see on the other side?
