Dark Skies Painted

from by Vex



Sketching the lines around this blank canvass
Stored somewhere in the distance of this empty chamber

In dark skies painted, she spoke with agonized colors
Through poisonous words invoked, a malevolent cadence of light

Smiling next to you under a lucid dawn of ash
Staring towards the murky river, our lives would soon be drowned in the tide

In dark skies painted, she spoke with agonized colors
With spirits withered and cloaked in indolent phrases of night

Through a widening fracture came elegiac turns of phrases
A sudden surge of torrid visions, carrying the force of life
These clouds would soon swallow us all, devouring through distant reaches
Haven sought in the wretched streets
Faceless, alone, and dying by degrees

Reinvigorated spirits awoke with agonized colors
With an ending as cruel and remote, as my exile to the sky
