Drop after drop of light and frozen joy,
They all vanish in the abyss of darkness,
Strung up, sacrifices to madness!
Now look, dear mortal…
Look at the sky!
Look at the earth!
Look at the mirror of your soul,
For there is the light of sadness…
You wish to be free,
You wish to rejoice.
But tell me now, mortal,
What lie? What song? What dance of disaster,
You wish to perform, to enchant your beloved master?
Now, look at the sky, the stars have all but vanished.
Look at the earth, it crumbled under the hooves of madness!
Look at the gods, they’re laughing at you!
Then look at the Moon, she’s crying for you…
Drop after drop, you waste the soul of your madness…
Drop after drop, you remembered the darkness…
Then look once more, at the dearest of moons
And sing her song and dance her tune.
Rise from your tomb of shadows and worms
For now you can see the light in which you were born!
Open your heart, open your soul
For inside you welcome,
Night’s tears shed for us all!
[Tears of the Night], a poem by DragomirCM
