Persephone

falling leaves tell of her parting

whilst the life congeals

all those beings left aborting –

cyane’s spring the seals

 

long and dark the hours passing

just as black the lock

„Speak where art thouh little maiden?“

 

pomegranate’s core the bitter

reason you are forced

„Wished I never ate the splitter

wished to stay on earth!“

 

long and dark the hours passing

just as black her heart

„Speak where art thouh little maiden?“

 

after endless years gone by

you’re stayin‘ in the ground

while death deity longs for her

you’re dying but still bound

A hair in the winter’s fur

Caught by the light aware but asleep
Never as close as the friends that you keep
Drifting away on one final breath
The further you climb, calm silhouette

And takes you along, long, long, long
And takes you along, long, long, long

Far from a world ailing to live
Far from the wreckage you were left in

And the crossing is over where the righteous remain
In the memory it’s deeper, survived by a name
The rest is sufficient, a midnight complaint
Left waiting in silence, left only to sleep

It takes you along, long, long, long
And takes you along.
