as my lover rages,
empty places without traces
a fist embraces, my body and soul.
blood fills my veins, as thunder rains,
behind closed shades.
deep inside i fade, hiding in the shade,
believing im unafraid.
morning awakens, as he gains control
evening sleeps with brusess and pain,
a silence within, embraces your fear
containning tears, of unworthiness.
as you awaken, never fully recovered.
and then die without ever really knowing,
then comes the falling dove.
