A fluid veil laid in between
the cold abyss and the vast night sky
enveloping the alluring surface.
Rain drops from the storm whisper to me
tales of temptation on the night we met.
A severed tongue marking me a slave to silence
is exchanged for a mortal union with you.
The pain of a thousand daggers
radiates through these new legs
with each step I take.
That would never compare to the pain
of knowing I might lose you
all because of this perverse barter.
Now you're trapped in the illusion
that she's the woman for you.
Unfaltering heartbreak shakes me
down to my fragile core
every time I see you with your whore
and you don't know that true love
was right under your nose all this time.
The only way to save myself is to destroy you
but I choose your happiness over mine.
As dawn closes in on me, the rising sun is the only one
here to bear witness to my dissolution.
From foam I came and to foam I shall return
after all, my happiness is just another fairy tale
in which itself does not have a happy ending.
