Lyrics – Triste

Sad brooding diamond in night sky
once glistened bright celestial light.
Conflagrant astral lover left without a reason why.
It seemed like a dream
only to be
angel-bereft reality.

Flittering flames melt into shade.
Star-burned, she yearns to dissipate.
Her luminescent luster dies,
fuliginously disguised;
encrusted heavens bleakly sigh.
