The light barely breaks
The cloying darkness
Here within
I’m wild with longing
Never dreaming
Of anything but sin
The gentlest creatures
In my forest
Should harken to the sound
For every promise
There’s the whiplash
Coming silent, sure around

A softer touch cannot
Breach the walls I’ve built
Here within
You’ll try to find me
But you’ll be lost
Before you can begin
I’m just a wildness
And lost laughter
In the soon encroaching dark
Here within
I warm a fire
From the promise of a spark
