I'm on my way into the unknown realms
of darkness, snow and strange events.
As if this place is not what I've been thinking of,
not even sure if this ever ends...
After all this way I now reached a place
of endless joy and discontent.
Bursts of silence sweeping through the forest
where the river's floating down the land.
From far behind rustling noise between the trees,
the moss on the ground turning into black disease.
I'm falling through the shadows of earth and in the darkened seas.
I turn around - I'm lying on my knees.
As the brightest light is falling down from the skies,
and the slightest breeze turns into deadly storms of ice,
the narrow path that keeps me clear is bouncing on both sides;
with an owl on its left and the witch with kaleidoscope eyes.
Torrents rushing down the once so silent land,
demons from the dark crawling through the sand,
the witch waddling over, rising up her hand -
is that the end?
The lights so dense they're piercing my eye,
my inner body purely rendered empty by
the dark spirit rising up into the sky -
will I die?
Ease coming over the land,
just as the demons are starting to disband.
The dark spirit's
still glimmering and flickering around my blackened hand.
And as the owl is landing on a rock,
there's a feeling this might be the end of my walk;
the river now shining bright, floating calmly through the night.
A warm breeze spreading from a blooming tree,
enrooted in this reality;
a glade of peace and tranquility,
buried in this forest so secretly.
And with this vision in mind,
I can feel the fears now fading away,
a rising touch of ultimate tension,
like I'm reborn in a new dimension.
Eventually this forest appears to dissolve,
leaving behind my memories of
a struggle with the demons of night
and unknown spirits from above.
And as I'm wandering out,
still wondering what this was about,
I feel it still as a part of my mind,
calling me from the nightly skies.
