In visions of the dark night
I have dreamed of joy departed-
But a waking dream of life and light
Hath left me broken-hearted.
I don’t deserve my dreams, after all this time, after all the terrible things I’ve done. But, alas, they come. My dreams haunt me with sweet images of a past that could have been, a future that will never be. One day, I found the angel. Fallen like me, forgotten by life like me, beautiful like I used to be, before I was defiled and torn from existence, and cursed into this snake prison where I live.
I found solace in those empty eyes, in the peaceful features of the angel’s face. I spend my hours telling him my old time stories and my dreams. It seems to me he knows that monsters can also dream. I slowly dare to hope again. I’m no longer alone.
What though that light, thro’ storm and night,
So trembled from afar-
What could there be more purely bright
In Truth’s day-star?
