Weak midnight promises of love Were wept upon Her grave And shunned by stars above In mortal life lurks my dismay An Angel stole my heart and Death took Her away
She sleeps beyond the grace of god A dreaming beauty If wishes could only fray that bond The dead would sing for me...
Twelfth moon arose with ghostly voice A poet's serenade Her name a whisper 'pon my lips And lo, Rorasa came
Fear me not my grieving King Funereal in breath The secrets of the dark I know And thus, we shall cheat Death"
My promises wrought though despondence that night Have delivered me gifts from the grave Rorasa en-shadowed and eternal life Never a Devil so vain The Angel is fallen, for I thought her lost And no heaven would silence the pain Teach me these secrets, the sensual frost Desire for warm blood again
Princess lay down thy florid cheek In drunken splendor Tonight rare regal fate has cast The wolves among the sheep
Dark nature clasp my soul Around Her throat mine arms enfold To sleep, perchance to dream And then... To dusk and flesh ascend
The Sun descends, magenta spirits fill the skies and wreak erotic maladies where sex and Death abide From writhing tides where Gothic siren weave their song to shore Through the ashes of the battlefields where ravens and angels war As phantoms we have fled the basilisk of day To rise as phoenix taloned, nightly taking prey
We rule like the red and risen moon upon the sea The stars of judgment silent, for we share joyous Eternity Damnation Salvation Stigmata plague
The wine of Bacchus flows Listen to the thunder rage
Deceivers dragged before their cross I am He that vanquished Death And bore the sting of loss What vulgar Christ will unprise my grasp? His temple, ruined, burns And sweet Rorasa laughs
I am enamored and imparadised To catch the fires dancing profanely in her eyes "I will crush them all If this holds thy delight" Rather dead forever than to lose her Nymph-lascivious Aphrodite
