Amaze is when I look at the night sky.

No wonder comes about to justify.

Six-thousand stars peer to the naked-eye.

Signify a glimpse of your name in the twilight.

Here’s a final requiem to you of my plight.

A red star called Pia just glimmers back…

..... 

Retrace a flashback, got sidetrack.

Pending to save and change the ending.

Too late, I relate a mistake to think twice.

I gave orders for you to be sacrificed.

I placed the ring on your finger. 

I’m to blame for putting you in danger.

I admit to having a short-temper.

My vow to you carries through.

Damn this day ever became true.

No way to turn back a raging waterfall.

Only you say anything at all.

You inhale for the last time from within.

Exhale you say I am forgiven.

Do not change a thing.

Swallow hemlock sends me into shock.

Socrates poison blurs back to allusion.

Realize what I’ve done, lost love, defeated never won.

Close my eyes forever, think about our times together.

Feel my body ceases.

Diminish into pieces.

Build-up pressure needs a catalyst to find closure.

Release my guilt inside of me, don’t defy me.

Explode me to implode me, every part of me.

 

I distinguished a quasar in search of you.

This far is true.

I’m coming at the speed of light for you.

No boundaries astray.

You’re a billion light years away.

A billion light years is far away.

I’m searching for you.

I’m finding you.

 

All the lechery told to me.

I was blind to see.

Believed deception listens to falsification.

I’m the one who made a bad call.

Love is a chaotic cue ball.

Hits and bounces everything around you. 

Did my best to vindicate what is true.

Live in peace with the virtue.

Pull everything back in.

Retract the way we use to be.

Nothing escapes me.

Not even light or essence of life.

Strife has consequences for my actions.

What I become, there is no solid foundation.

Dark energy penetrates.

I’m finding ways to relate.

All this dead space between us is a whirlwind of sorrow.

A bottomless vacuum hurts like Dante’s inferno.

 

I distinguished a quasar in search of you.

This far is true.

I’m coming at the speed of light for you.

No boundaries astray.

You’re a billion light years away.

A billion light years is far away.

I’m searching for you.

I’m finding you.

 

No, I’m not the only one lost to tragedies of love.

Conflicts of hate pull and shove.

I want to forgive and forget.

I’m no Romeo and you’re not Juliet.

You’re a white dove flying in the sky of constellation.

I was in doubt figuring out the questions.

Sat down and converse with my story.

If anyone tells you good advice must be History.

Here in a place called Limbo with the intellects of wise men.

A woman by the name of Penthesilea tells me, her omen.

A similar fate was accidental.

Sequence of events can be fatal.

This planet was too small to hold the both of us.

In god we trust, this is my punishment.

Do what you must.

I’ve no resentment; here is my last testament.

 

I distinguished a quasar in search of you.

This far is true.

I’m coming at the speed of light for you.

No boundaries astray.

You’re a billion light years away.

A billion light years is far away.

I’m searching for you.

I’m finding you.
