Hear My Latest Epic Single: “She Straightened Her Veil over Her Face”

My labor of love in 2017 is now ready for the prime time.  This one continues the arc I started with the last single, “Can You Love a Landmine?

She Straightened Her Veil over Her Face

Through the grey, sickly haze
You found your family veil
To shade o’er your face
While reading long lost mail

Trace the deeply faded link,
The long forgotten hints
How you used to think
Of the long awaited prince

How he failed

I lost sight of your eyes
Beneath your lovely veil
Dark, starless nights
While you choked your tale

Creak of worn, decaying door
On the way to your small cell
Where birds sang to mourn
As your dreams cruelly fell

How we failed

Suffocating alone now
While bleeding to atone how
We broke our forever vow
Remember?

How long will your exile be
In your breathlessly fortified vault
How far will your chained soul flee
From your heart’s fault
Your pale ghost
Your harsh host
Or is it?

Through the grimly tattered veil
You claw her neck so wild
Forever lasting wail
Of your ghastly starving child

As your fingers tightly wrap
Around her weakest vein
Your mania tear the gap
In the hearts of dreams long slain

How she failed

Suffocating alone now
While bleeding to atone how
We broke our forever vow
Remember?

How long will your exile be
In your breathlessly fortified vault
How far will your chained soul flee
From your child’s fault
The grave cost
Your life, lost
Or is it?

Suffocating alone now
While bleeding to atone how
Barricading your last spark
Gave its flame away into the dark
Leave the light on
Leave the light on
Leave the light on
Let me share this pain
Leave the light on
Leave the light on
To remain
