Arose anger inside
Hidden beyond indifference
Imposed self-control
Slowly disappears
The Sunlight
Closer than before
Warming breath
Supposed to be forever


On your side
Behind the chamber of pain
Vicious smile and stony eyes
Divinity recedes

Erupted anger outside
No more obedience
Red stains appear
Deaf fists dance
Soothing with every scream
The Sunlight recedes

You know everything
About my weaknesses
You know when I see red
Delighted to watch
Your marks on me
A false dawn
Slaughtered at dusk


The black mirror emerges...

Dancing for shadows of your insanity
On the scene of my internal screams
Swallowing poison throughout eternity
I discard endless sacrifices
Your chaos of ice and flames
Cut the sunlight down
I need to clean
My hands with you
From the ashes of my expectations
You’ll be mine
And all those close to you
I will devour
The black mirror emerges
She is here and she is not
He is here and he is not
The black mirror bends
I see you though see not
I feel you though feel not
Scarlet mirror flows
Marble lips though the noise is growing
Your flesh dancing in the whiteness

This night is as black as grief
You’ll be mine!

You are not
The sunlight approaches
Lies receded
