Darkness take thee,

Darkness take thee,

As you wake me,

From my sleeping thought.

I see it, festering,

As your gesturing,

To the pain you've wrought.

Two loves, crushing,

As your lusting,

At all that you have lost.

Sins and woes,

To you bestowed,

As you see into my heart.

Running, fleeing,

Your eyes, weeping,

As I fly with the larks.

Flying, soaring,

The skies, pouring,

As it cries for truth.

I am running,

My heart, shunning,

The love I hold for you.
