aria

In the deep night,
let me exist
like the mad in clouds,
like the blind in flowers.
In the deep night,
let me weep
on the convulsive rivers.
In the deep night,
let me fall
amidst the impotent skies.
In the deep night,
let me die
like a feckless bird.
In the deep night.

Who shall remember us
in the deep night?
Thoughts so spent,
wonderless love
in the deep night.
Friends flicker out.
Let me suffer
in the deep night.
Oh parted hands
that no one recognizes
in the deep night

In the deep night,
let forever,
let my face be
in solitary agony,
in the deep night,
in the deep night
which might carry the memory away.
