Mouth of Darkness

I know you, I can taste you,
Inside my heart, in my mind!
Your fire is still a part of me,
Just as my darkness is of you.
Look inside, you will find,
More than any eye could see.

Do not look into the storm!
Beware the eye that lies within.
Seek the shore, remain warm,
The king of Atlantis is dead!
His navy is lost to his own sin.
Now comes chaos and dread,
As the drowned speak of pain.
There is nothing left to gain,
By embracing the dark flame.
Renounce the gods' own shame!
Murderers all, as a people fall.
I know the one they kept sealed,
Whose wounds never healed.
More divine than the lot,
More sublime in thought.
Giver of the gift of truth,
No purveyor of common sooth.
They called that one fallen,
As they spread poison pollen.
The gods' slanders destroyed,
Those with whom they toyed.

Just as I said in prophecy,
When everything was not born.
When the world is lost to perfidy,
There will come a dark morn!
I have met the fallen, happy day,
Now I know the golden way.
Lead me home to the darkness,
The light is terrible to endure.
I am your mouth, your mistress,
I survived the drowned shore.
With you, I was changed.
The world became strange,
But your truth remains!
A part of me.
I want everyone to see,
Your divinity!
