«Necare» - «Desire (the Dawn & the Chrysalis)»

Desire (the Dawn & the Chrysalis)
If your embrace were a chrysalis
I would weather callous frosts
Or die inside a madrigal, slow-breathing
Your pale shoulders and flow of hair

Solitude, solitude
What have you done?

My lifeless fingers trace the surface
For these lines exist in lithic memory

In colonnades where light, weight, and form
Shatter like a thousand breaking bones
Above a sea of twisted limbs

What have you done?
Fuck your beautiful world
The doubt in your heart made no amends
The doubt in your heart left nothing for me

I often return to the frozen ground
Where I laid with you
When I gaze across the fields
I understand the beauty of dying leaves

And why the dying trees reach to touch a faraway sun
And why I have become a forlorn wreck
Of fleeting intangibles
My better nature scorched in the crucible that is you

I hate, yearn, despair and lust
Desire, what have you done?
What have I become?
I am nothing

Desire, what have you done?
What have I become?
I am nothing
Nothing
