wraiths of barbs upon her flesh
inked on arms bought with blood
she dances her dance under the spell
as the beat of the music flood
like a cloudburst on willing ears

she follows the lyrics like a mystic
she gives her soul in reverie
each note of pure bliss
is like an etheric kiss

she smells faintly of midnight
she looks like sweetest death
she smiles like the Cernunnos moon
her slightest touch, a caress

she is always autumn
she is a child of the night
she is the closest door to my heaven
she is my light, shining darkly

she is my autumn
