Flame of memories!
Flame of memories on a shivery night
renders warmth to my soul, my mind
knock of the past at the slumber sight
ceases my sleep and kindles me light;
dreams in stark eyes, shadow lashes down
frightens me off to steal away my poise
wide eyes all round me glare in vain
and call some name in a rustling voice;
gloomy silence of the darkness deep
numbs me down of an unseen fright
they feel me blank to a dreadful sight
that leaves me lonely, sickly and paralyzed!
