The sorrow of the soul that wept
The unseen body I made love to…
You were the ghost that died
The one I carried in my heart
Memories in red black red black red
The Ghost that died was the you I never had…

Sifting through a haystack of night.
Giving up he went up to the crest of the hill,
Overlooking the sprawl of the town,
He found her waiting for him.
Hair billowing like a forgotten…
