My dream has slept With a stranger And given birth to Non-existent memories I go to sleep dreaming of YOU But in sleep I see DARKNESS All around You have stolen my Dreams And loveless I pine!
Step by step you Are taking me Away from you, Your life and Your times Step by step I am receding. Step by step. You visited me the Night before Your soul consummated Mine And now I stare at the Empty body with Hatred in my Eyes, My body My flesh Am I not rotting?
From a distant land A fragrance floats in Taking on its path Unseen dreams and hopes To mesmerize me beyond Measure. The story though Remains untold. Life flows by River flows by The souls are kissed The banks get moistened And a dream away you Stand, poetry incarnate.
