I raise my eyebrow.
"'Curiosity killed the cat', I believe is the saying Mademoiselle. Then again, so is the term, 'Madness in the pursuit of science'."
I shake my head. This is either foolishness, or something extraordinary waiting to be uncovered. I take a deep breath, letting myself harness my inner Essence.
I have searched across the years, for a glimpse beyond the tears.
Not caring once for those I left behind.
Having strayed so far from home,
I deserve to stand alone.
For while I chased the secrets of the night...I never saw the beauty in the light.
The air around me begins to shimmer softly with black and gold energy, but I keep it reined back.
The sun that never rose, the dawn that never came.
My morning has deserted me, with no one left but me to blame.
None admires those who will not see.
And now the light is here,
And everything is clear…
But now I fear the coming of the dawn…
Has come too late for me.
I let the song become part of me, telling the story I cannot express through word.
In the theater of my mind,
Though the shadows intertwine…
It seemed my every step was strong and true.
And I acted just for me…
On my stage of fantasy.
** For no one fears the morning’s gentle beams,**
**Except the fool who lives inside his dreams. **
The sun that never rose…
The dawn that never came…
My morning has deserted me, to bear the darkness of my shame.
Reaching for tomorrow, I have lost today.
And now that all that’s grey…
Is fading into day,
I only pray the coming of the dawn, has come to light the way.
I allow a slight more of my energy to be expended, boosting the effects of my powers.
The sun that never rose,
The dawn that never came.
Why do the things we have seem precious…
Only once they’ve slipped away?
Dreams of glory have their price to pay.
But far beyond the night…
Lie promises of light…
And maybe with the coming of the dawn, there comes another day.
Maybe with the coming of the dawn…
There comes another day.
I look at the girl, a tear threatening to escape under my mask.
Maybe with the coming of the dawn, there comes another day.
