For Soft Relief

                                       Each dark desire
                                         for soft relief
                                        refuels the fire.

                                        Mad dreams aspire
                                        to hell's motif.

                                         Each dark desire
                                       ignites God's ire.

                                       Cold reason's thief
                                        refuels the fire.

                                      Disturbed winds sire
                                       the spawn of grief.

                                        Each dark desire
                                        provokes the pyre.

                                        Sheaf after sheaf
                                        refuels the fire.

                                         The singer's lyre
                                        cries breath be brief.

                                         Each dark desire
                                         refuels the fire.
