My eyes hold the eventide,
albeit behind the eys thou hast
thro' which I 'hold naught else
a flame enshroudéd in its blackness;
but the raven;
burning without the faintest breeze.
Sleep my dearest ones -
teach me, dearest, the reason wherefore
mind not the palling velvet darkness
thou by such angst mark'd art?!

Wherefore is here loneliness?;
infinite hollowness
in which my thoughts echo,
to the shadows I whisper -
with the shadows I waltz -
bear me; I am not the plague,
altho' nightclad death...mayhap?!

Dare not naysaying my grant;
dance no longer with the shadows,
vanish with me abaft the unlight! -
dance no longer with the dead in the graveyard;
O! the tast on thine lips;
dance with me the mephisto waltz.
A trickling deep red love -
wedlock 'twixt day and night -
everlasting lightheartédness -
offer me relief fro the sunrays.
A kiss for thee my dear.

Ah! Such delight I sense:
eternally and ne'erendingly;
savour the bitter grapes of life!
A soulsister of thine I am.

Let me openly greet thy kiss;
the most loving and caring bites.

Grant me thineself!,
I bore the woe in my heart
My heart was shatter'd into its tithe,
as I depart embrace me,
save yet are its chambers in flood.
And in paltry time will I re-awake -
I love thee.
