Maia Padua

(Virgo / City of Gentle People)

In the Shadows of Shadow


In the shadows of shadow
Illumines your wonders
In the widest field
Fruits of all fruits;
Beyond far horizon,
Behind few wandering clouds
Lonely sparrow follows

Shield from unseen debris
Of devouring lies
Your shades and rays
Paint the empty page
Pages to pages
A shift of story
A portrait of me

Pain captures
in every page of story
Bears not a mystery
Yet bares truth, unspoken
The shadows of shadow
In dreams of dreams
Of dreams within a dream
Reveals reality
All through the destiny
You saved me

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
