Feel the tremble of the parchment I close my eyes In the shadows of the Spruce They weep like the willows Walk on by as you’ve done before Into the darkness As my madness wept in black tears A bleeding soul, fractured light I slice the silver from my blade ****, ****, ****, life And this ******* masquerade Could you…take me as I am? Eyes closed wide to the focus On the sight In the witching of night ‘Neath the misted sky Walk with me through the dancing shadows Could you…take me as I am? The woe was seeded deep, Deep in poetry I tasted your tears As they dripped and mixed with mine Could you…take me as I am? Silent steps through forlorn sands That even in darkness we can love again Could you…take me as I am? Shadows don’t leave, they stay Never, can you touch what I have See what I have seen Could you…take me as I am?
