Loosing my head
I looked...
What hunger of the heart or soul or body
Drove me on in the dark
Carelessly grasping for a hand to kiss
A soul to share
A love to own.

And it was... in the dark...
That I found my prize
Coming in to... within... my heart
But not in my hands
Suffering me not

Lowering me to my knees
This love
Leaving me to weep
Deaf to my longing
Blind to my fate
Such a numb peace.

Such a numb peace
Knowing my true desire
Never to delight in it
My heart... halted...
Found the goal of its perilous search
The merciless death of a lonely heart
Delighting in the numbness
Til an illusion comes to free me.
