Treasure Island

Gabriela Duricova

(22.5.1984 / Bratislava)

The Darkened Bride


In arms of solitude
In waters standing still
There dwelled my heart bare nude
Untouched by any thrill

In peace of forests deep
Where you can't hear a sound
I have been loosing sleep
Since your love came around

You met me young and shy
Pulled me close, drank my soul
Drop by drop; now it's dry
When sorrow took control

Of pretty fairy-tale
That today's torn to shreds
Where this bride wears black veil
For love she never had

I used to dream of sun
Two palms to keep me warm
To catch me on the run
Protect me from the storm

I got your bitter lips
Burning mine 'till the dawn
Your hungry fingertips
Those on my skin have drawn

Hearts I can wash away
By no amount of tears
Forever red they stay
Since blood to skin adheres

How can I let you go -
- One who was never mine?
Though your name like before
Sends shivers down my spine
