~The lake is frozen over
The trees are white with snow
And all around
Reminders of you
Are everywhere I go~
Dragging yourself from the comfort of sleep was like pulling yourself from a tempest, the waves crashing over you, dark clouds beating you with heavy storms. Yet, you woke to darkness, silence. Your eyes, swollen, red and stinging from the night’s tears, glazed over as you peer into your memories, a time lost.
Time stood still in this room, while the rest of the world passed you by.
And despite the unbearable ache, the wound in your chest from a heart long broken,
you wished to remain in these visions, these figments of your dreams,
for they were the only thing keeping him alive.
It's late and morning's in no hurry
But sleep won't set me free
I lie awake and try to recall
How your body felt beside me
When silence gets too hard to handle
And the night too long
Limbs weighted, you slowly
Twice and twice shall he be marked,|
twice to live, and twice to die.
Once the heron, to set his path.
Twice the heron, to name him true.
Once the Dragon, for remembrance lost.
Twice the Dragon, for the price he must pay.
-Karaethon Cycle, 'The prophecies of the Dragon'
