Dour virtues, scourging to sores Rebuked by the noxious, a lifetime curse Ascetic, nostalgic, with blood tasting tears Dolefulness permeates the air The light keeps fondling the black of her hair Like threads made of silk, scattered greys titivate A weary soul that found relief And her face like an effigy, gentled with grief In the horizon a star has collapsed Following thousands and thousands of dreams A deafening beauty, a ravishing star She was a gardenia born in barren lands A fathomless memory, a fathomless life A downhearted daughter shrieks Sun kissed skin, a flowered white dress Its petals are longing for the wind´s caress. Coiled in her feeble legs Caroline had the first glimpse at the serpent of death Fire, fire Scorched dreams Winds of death Soothing relief Sour breath Vanished in a day Blitheness denied Fire, fire Scorched dreams Winds of death Soothing relief Sour breath Vanished in a day Lady Lazarus The overture of a tale Into the woods across the hills Not a queen but a warrior Not an empress but a sorceress A saffron sunset muttered on the ear of an orphaned child Thy mother gleaned bright; thou art the daughter of a star Caroline, you're the offspring of the wingless moon That flutters and reveres just one more time She pours its light upon the night and combs the hair of her ailing grandchild Seventeen hours passed, she needed to travel fast A sudden realization that she ran without direction Into the pale cold trees and fallen velvet leaves Nothing but a letter of her raging fist My beautiful Caroline: You are my everything Now I am light, I am everything I ever wanted I was too weary of gazing at the heavens Mother's calling me to dance with her
