tribute to a fallen star.

“Oh, but when love is reached through suffering, it has a power it can never gain through innocence.”

--Memnoch the Devil - Ann Rice

lyrics

You were a fist of clay
Struck by a falling star
And in the disarray
The mold broke into dust

You were an open book
Yet the words were so arcane
It was the world that shook
As your magic lit the skies

‘But I love you,’
…said the sun to the moon
‘But I love you,’
…said the knife to the wound

Upon the precipice
With grace, plans formulate
And with a soulful kiss
Dark Heaven opened wide

Into the lore of time
The songs reverberate
The fury of its chimes
Unhinged the door to dreams

‘But I love you,’
…said the sun to the moon
‘But I love you,’
…said the knife to the wound

Into forever’s halls
The legend reverberates
In lost and distant lands
Echoes jettisoned in time
