Althena's Pond

to rest here cradled by the waves
this forest path is long
a trail of fireflies lights the way
awaiting your return

and now I know what's wrong
so far from it now
misshapen images of mist
the waning sounds of dawn

destroy the only world I know
liquid spirits rise
her magic is so strong within
this eternal night

moonstruck and bemused
lost in towers in your mind
her last illusions dimly glow
and I am never coming home
