Don't call. Without any summons I'll reach the shrine. And droop my head in even silence To your feet fine. I fell before your passions' power, Before its wave, Sometimes -- a serf; sometimes -- a lover; Always -- a slave. I will your orders shyly listen And will remain To catch our meetings, short and instant, And wish again. I fell before your passions' power, Before its wave, Sometimes -- a serf; sometimes -- a lover; Always -- a slave.

I am the name you've engraved into stone  I am the master of all that I see  I am the sound that consumes your silence  I am the fire that spills into your lungs  I am the fear that betrays your temple  I am the master of my own temple  I wait for the earths mind to be made up  The loss of the light is a sign of remembrance  As I fall away from the dream I'm awakened  The roots under rocks cannot mold my bones yet  When stars are contagious  When the roots have their grasp on me  Then I'll know it's time  Cold is the wind, when the howl is born  A siren to speak to blood  Shadows crawl and snake to dust  and the dirt shrieks its warnings thus:  The wolves have come child  The wolves have come

I am dead, I am dead to you. I am dead to you, you haven’t even noticed that I’m gone, and it’s been to long. In your bed, in your bed with you, in your bed with you a drooling man, my memories were drowned down and it’s been too long. I’m not expecting any calls today, your mum lives right here, just one step away, just one step further, tumblers cheer for me, dropping from the lowest place will you hear me if I break? Cause you are my one and only I’m your one and lonely, I told myself a stupid ring could wait. I long to be the one that comes home late, but I was always… I was late, I was late for you now I’m dead to you, you felt alone, but not enough to share I feel you didn’t care. I’m not expecting any calls today your mum says “Hi, dear” and pulls away from me. Just one step further, save this memory - Come to visit, sit on our bench, Pretend you could have gone through this again. Cause you are my one and only, I’m your one and lonely I told myself a stupid ring could wait, I long to be the one that comes home late, but I was always late. Cause you are my one and only, I’m your one and lonely I told myself a stupid ring could wait, I long to be the one that comes home late, but I was always…

O see him crawling there: Snake in a rabbit's den. O hear his rattle then. He's not your friend. Don't look into his eyes - It's there that rabbits die And serpents never cry To see their prey caught In the coiled way.

O, gather me the rose, the rose, While yet in flower we find it, For summer smiles, but summer goes, And winter waits behind it! For with the dream foregone, foregone, The deed forborne for ever, The worm, regret, will canker on, And time will turn him never. A wink from Hesper, falling Fast in the wintry sky, Comes through the even blue, Dear, like a word from you… Is it good-bye? Across the miles between us I send you sigh for sigh. Good-Night, sweet friend, good-night: Till life and all take flight, Never good-bye. So well it were to love, my love, And cheat of any laughter The death beneath us and above, The dark before and after. The myrtle and the rose, the rose, The sunshine and the swallow, The dream that comes, the wish that goes, The memories that follow!
