As Worlds Fall Away

As Worlds Fall Away

Through these endless, starless nights

The silence between grows longer

The silence that finds you

Finally, alone

The clamour of wind and sky

The flames of the dying sun

A waning light sinks into the sea

The heavens slowly weep

Then drift away into eternity

The far horizon, a funeral scene

Once gardens and groves

Pavilions and palaces

Sift through the ashes

Now there is nothing


As worlds fall away

Between waves of darkness

And time’s running sands
