Black Amethyst Sky

He was the sun, the moon, the black amethyst sky

His voice thundered in the air, a timeless familiar melody
played by a thousand haunting bass drums

My heart now no longer mine, adrift in a vast ocean of emptiness
for my eternal love has gone, sailing to far off unknown shores
yet still, I ache and yearn to die in his sheltering arms
