Ghostly light, a long dead star
reflecting from my dimming smile,
the princess in that fading sun
I haven't seen her in a while.

With glowing hearts and beating souls
we loved with love that opened scars.
These scabs we tore, they only bled
with light from young, flirtatious stars.

Then, one night those stars exploded,
gushing love with empty sunlight.
The twilight came with shadows vile,
their open palms, holding midnight …

These shadows came with icy rock,
crashing through my maiden's tower.
I hope she died with all my love,
broken dreams in starlit showers.
