Darkness
Envelops eleven gloomy maidens
As they gaze longingly
At a distant moon
Across distant skies
Along a distant river
To a new world

Light
Blurs into desperate attempts
As an uncontrollable disease
At a still dusk
Across still imaginations
Along still picture movies
To open all possibilities

Passion
Shadowing lies of your enemy
As a bullet passes through
At perplexing speeds
Across perplexing drinks
Along perplexing atmospheres
To save what you once were

Pain
Retreating into oblivion
As nothing seems legitimate
At endless developments
Across endless death
Along endless roads
To revisit old frontiers
