The absence of light,
Lies heavy on my eyes...
As darkness creeps,
Into the crevices of my existence,
I listen to the footfalls,
Of the friendly pall-bearers!

     Travelling along the oft-sinned paths,
     My beloved a half-blood God!
     The soul searches for a melodious song,
     Misty-eyed I bathe in your halloed light!

Awakening in me,
A long lost love,
Yet,only to light its pyre.
The desire to dance to unknown beats,
To rest beside my tired being.

          Bowed down by the agony and the guilt,
          Numbed by the fire within,
          The wait for a peacefull retreat,
          May my muse in me live!
