Song of the Day
November 05, 2016
This is a sad day here in the world of shades
But even pain has its own beauty
Even pain can perform a lovely face
Blinding stream, double-edged
In an extra-terrestrial gloom
Beautiful creation of steel
Grown in my barren womb...

They way into the light will separate me from my flesh
Myriads in their birth-giving red
Swimming forcefully through-out space
This darkest space is wide
And the mountain is still so high
Fly up my black little eyes
And cross the frontiers that dare to define my life!

No space too vast and surely no place too far
The groping sister feels that her eyes
Must be somewhere alive
So she is afraid of all the dwellers of the dark
In their blindness they will never understand
The tempting gift of sight

This place is cold, blindly she can feel
The dead wind caressing the rocks
From high above they come way down
These angels kissing our undead bodies to stone...
