In the shadow of my tears
Apparitions so firmly appear
Am I trembling?
Need I ask this of myself, again?

A faint whisper so unseen
Can this be mine as I lie deep in dream?
Sanity sings a requiem
Please return to me

Given all the chances
In light of the fading dawn
Will the blind so blindly follow me
Whom lacks capability to see?

In the shadow of my tears
Will my vision break the tension
Of waters keen tranquility
Deeply breathing so openly

Does a sweet alibi
Deem murder fit for sacrifice?

Will my blood stain the carpet
So dry and innocent
The warmth in kerosene
Flickering against my wiltering soul

Will I be the only one?

I lie inside myself
Bury me amidst my flooded vessels
Sanity continues to be my sincerest means
To wish death on myself due to cancerous veins

In the shadow of my tears
Light the way with thy heart
Oh, the fool despairs when rain falls
After night's isolated heat
Yet, listening so closely to the smallest drop of life
A beast is eased and quenched by the near distant
River flowing in my alternate being
So ghastly do I seem
Yet also eyes I have, cannot see
In dearest time blind will be no more
Suffering will be no more
I will be no more
