The Woman of The Snow: Cold Deep Heart

All Rights Reserved © Faith and the Muse

The Lures of destruction

Stiffen their engaging grasp

In the Webs of Water Lilies and Blood

Mortal Coils

Eyes of fire

Devotion the most infinite Trap

Lady of the Snow

Webbing her tears of Ice

Heart obscures all hope

Lady of the Waters

Vespers

The expiring map

Prudence

The will to a calm

Prudence

Never suffering the worldly charm

Inside

and

Beneath

_______________

Lies the head of the wanderer

___________________

And his heart,

A cloud

______________

Passing all that is solid

Passing all that is Clear

_________________

Come Hither My lost Child

Come to see all that had passed

______________________

With your wary little limbs

And your heavy stride so Lithe

_____________________

Will you Heed all that is not encountered?

Heed the passings which haunt?

_________________________

Come into my haunted garden

Come tread this ghastly path

____________________

Your eyes so lost and distant

Your mouth so firm and drawn

___________________

Devotion is ever dreaming

Awake, this the dead end breath

________________

The fires that had burned inside you

The Wind which carried your here

___________________

Respect, this the tree of delusion

___________________

Enamored deadly

forever these briars

to trap

Void of Silence

All Rights Reserved © Arcana

How calm the dead seas

Which Rise

Passing this blooming Void

————————

How desolate these valid plains

Whose Beauty

Neither touches the earth or sky

————————-

How careful these bodies

Which reach into the hollowing Void

————————-

These motions of departing desires

These impressions of unforgiving regrets

—————————–

I abide these endless deserts

I rove this comfortless plot

——————————–

Though this planet I breathe is feigning

These lips so pallid and pink

—————————-

A whisper on the clouds of desperation

—————————–

My hope, my home

this silence, the purest void

The wandering salvation

Murders the Crop

The wheat of the wanderer

Is feeding

Quicksands final drop

In the waters that lead

In the valleys that want

In the narrows this calm

In these hands of conservation

The footsteps which haunt

Leading this destruction

One tear of reclamation

My saviour

My Fear

The Pearl

For they cannot see

With the eyes they have been given

Touching upon the colorless

_____________________

For they cannot feel

With the hearts often forsaken

Touching upon the hardening sheaths

________________________

For They cannot breathe

With the breath of a thousand children

Touching these openings of forbidden calm

___________________________

For they once will Walk

And they unceasingly wander the impure

_________________________

Yet the treasured, this glory

It will always

__________________

Remain…

Unmarred

Defaced by the alms of the forsaken

Remained…

By the lives that so seldom speak

____________________

Open…

To the surrounding unclean

Closed…

To its own uncustomary delicacies
