World Within (Even Song)

She closed her dreams into her teardrops From reality's sharp-clawed demons She hid her face of tearful eyes From the scan of this grotesque world As petals her wings are falling Like angelic curses from eternal welkin Her serene dreams are vanishing Exiled far from the frozen light She held a dead rose in her hands Passing memory of a divine land Her mate -- darkness -- adopted her Shielded her body so frail Only one place to find peace Pleasant cradle of her dreams A world within
