....b.e.f.o.r.e the sun set

By diavolessa

do you remember the scarlet beverage?
do you remember when we were young,
and there was nothing in this world
we would not fight for?
do you remember me before I died?

I am suffocating right now,
numbness is slowly decaying my whole being
but there is a tale left
just before the sun set


I always dreamed of being a princess
leading the fairy tale life
I wanted to live forever
look upon you and your beauty
never dying, yet always changing…

I sit on the bedpost
for 999 days
as Madame Butterfly pays
and listen to the tragicomedy
my life has became

as ray of light
strangling the tunes
resting on melodious nights
I am slowly brought to being
dancing slowly on the arms of casualty
all because cause have ceased to exist

the darkness touches me places
I have never been touched before
The wind kisses me mouths
I have never been kissed before
The moon lights thoughts
I have never thought before

green, blue, yellow, white
the warmth that consumes the fire
the catalyst that sheds purple tears
and the love that springs fair disgust

blood that writes on the pages
of a diary from a thousand years ago
tears that dry on the surface of a dream
anguish that lights a fire
all because we have became mute

...per favore
volio andare in un paese che non chi sonno stata mai
volio esere reincarnata una farfalla
e moriro quel steso giorno...

    volio esere reincarnata una farfalla- was my favorite line. I don't know what it means, but if someone was to whisper it in my ear I would get really turned on.

    it means "i would like to be born a butterfly." I think it sounds better in italian. :) thanks for the comment!
