Kiss of Midnight
I fell into a dark abyss
As dark as a lingering midnight kiss
I felt it as warmly as heavens touch
And I wondered, can this thing be love?
Oh the cruelty of the daylight hours
That I should be animated by such strange powers
Gentle words, so softly spoken
For just one moment, I was awoken
Whispered words of whimsy taking flight
She, a tainted dark angel in the light
Oh, such beauty, can it really be?
In such beauty, can we believe?
My heart as fragile as butterfly wings
I, bewitched as the siren sings
Only in shadows do flaws begin to form
In the blueness of the sky, I saw not the storm
Hell holds, folds me within its icy grip
My heart… torn, battered, ripped
For now the devil shows her face
Wrapping me up in spider web lace
Who could have foretold such a lovely torment?
When now I see you are not heaven sent
For nor am I an angel when all grace is gone
And from a midnight kiss, this pain was born
