Maybe this elixir
Will bring me back to life
I've been dead for so long now
Was I your husband or your wife?
Or the disciple of an alchemist?
Reconfiguring the void
Did I decipher alphabets
Before they were destroyed?
Who did I think I was?
Was I someone that you loved?
Did I have a name? I can't recall
What was I thinking of?
Am I the herald of a revelation?
Dormant intuitions cluster
Mist and fog congeal
Inside my head emanations drift
And there's a crypt inside my heart
In the crush of your grip, kissing your lips
I can't endure if we should part
Will I find release in the afterlife
When I awaken from this dream?
Without fear or dread or earthly strife
Flesh and blood redeemed
