Laid bare beneath a veil of starlight
As the colors of night encircle above me
Like eight hungry birds of prey
As they begin their dance downward
In celebration of my glorious decay
On luminous and silent wings they fly
Into my hollows of my vestigal body
To carry the remains into the sky
They glide back and forth like smoke
With blackened feathers casting shadows
Bleak images falling softly on my face
As they sing beautiful lullabies of rapture
And whisper gently of the coldest embrace
The howling wind resonates her sad melody
A dismal hymn of my earthly melancholy
Drowning into the glowing liquid of nightfall

And I know that the light cannot return to me
As my body fades in obscurity...

I will never embrace the dawn
I will never behold the sunrise again
I will never embrace the dawn
I will never behold the sunrise again
