A fury born: the soul is torn
By love and hate and lies untold--
The words unsung, the aches cold
Where fire did once flash uncontained
A crimson rose did once adore
The twisted stem of leaves and thorn

A tear is shed: the heart has bled
Gleaming daggers thrust once more--
The mind is sharp; her love is cruel
Yet adoration once did pour
While in their eyes was often read
The tale of hope and fear and dread

A dream defied: a love denied
Shield your heart with walls of stone--
The tow'r will fall; she is the rock
Their dreams exceed the grains of sand--
In darkest night her soul to ride
In her arms will you abide?
