the original bastard soul

come hither and dance with a stranger said edgar allan poe
hidden behind the mask lies all the things we didn`t even know
close to you lucifer is rising temptations caress the waste land
in a silent language the widows weed is damaged after the fall
out of control a morning star will sing for all at the vampires ball

strings pulled faces torn then enthralled morning has its glory
as the raven sung in the pit of the soul the pendlumn swung
ushered in a dream that never slept nevermore or evermore
an unworldly realm of otherness memories sweetly decaying
destroying illusions the weeping demon wretched in its being

orpheus wishes you were here sharing dreams with strange gods
the conqueror worm no more in silence has no place left to hide
on a wish list within a schizophrenic sonnet lives a seaside suicide
pleasure and pain at the feast of blood languishes the beautiful thorn
slowly draining life from the magic bishop inside this golden dawn

not dead but dying an ensemble of shadows visitants in a dreadful mirror
a cage within a cage the inner hell a spiral traveller unlocking his spell
leeches and deception times haven will stand still its the darkly hour
eros whispers sweet nothings to the riddle box that spoke to pandora
of a never-ending remembrance beyond those mournful frozen faces

the original bastard soul
