Black Curtain

I could listen to your lies forever
Give me no glimpse of the truth
Shroud me in your black curtains
Until words have no meaning
Spoken into the empty blackness
Touch me, and the world is yours
Command my soul until it breaks against the cliffs
Defenses you built against this very onslaught
But never expected it to come from within
Shouts to the night may fade to the edges of distant planets
And become more important in their travels
Than the shimmering sun of morning
Somewhere along this path of eternity
The end waits to be discovered
Leave it in the shadow, and speak to me
Until time becomes less than a dream
