It burns; the sands of time fused into glass;
Ephem'ral flame now smold'ring ash; once bright,
The glow has dimmed; cold heart of tarnished brass.
Deceitful Judas kiss, my lonely plight.
Chaotic shards are mirrors, my cold flame,
In your reflective guile, I play the fool.
Grief, forged in my grim soul, cannot be tamed
Refracting light breaks shadows, oh so cruel.
In smoke my crystal heart is veiled; in vain
It waits. Betrothed to iron claws of love-
Crushed-shards of shattered glass fall from the pane
Thick darkness comes, a blessing from above.Immortal flame, simply delusion;
Combusting time, only illusion.
