Stain your wish in crimson ink Light a candle bathed in red Watch it burn, don’t blink When the sun fades and stars wink The moon shines overhead Stain your wish in crimson ink The night is long and shadows slink Let the flame banish doubt and dread Watch it burn, don’t blink Pour yourself a fiery drink Pen the desire in your head Stain your wish in crimson ink Light your paper and watch it shrink Declare what you have left unsaid Watch it burn, don’t blink Wait for dawn to turn the sky pink The sun emerging from a cloudy bed Stain your wish in crimson ink Watch it burn, don’t blink
the moon waxes, wanes pulling my thoughts like the tide shaping my dreams
