December Night (Gone)

Frustrated soul.
I’m the only one to blame.
I bit at love’s forbidden fruit.
My eyes awoke to an evil place
where lies fall from lover’s lips
and where the devil makes his home.

I’ve been thrown out of Eden.
Lost my glory.
Lost my crown.
Now I wander through the desert
watching the sun circle ’round.
My throat parched from
this arid grave
hollow and endless
I sleep-

underneath the stars
counting the endless array
of dreams yet to come my way.

How I weep for her
in all her beauty,
her golden garden
sparkling new

Flesh of my flesh.

Gone are the days of Eden
But the memories remain.
