Sample piece from The Sear of Wounds

Aria IV

Let's tattoo white roses
across the what's left over
love bringing madness in its bliss
slipped under the shorelines
of a once embracing nakedness
let's tattoo this emblem
a white rose
across the nakedness of our bellies
see what of forever lasts forever
death has many masks
let us unmask the one true of us
let's tattoo our names
across the what's left over
remembering a love
which brought madness in its bliss

* "And so a secret kiss/ Brings madness with the bliss"
