    I am standing in the crystal rain
    Water sluicing through my hair
    Plastered to my forehead
    Wet and cold seeping into the pores of my skin
    I envisioned your face among the gray storm clouds
    As thunder rolls in deep booms
    Across the midnight purple sky
    As lightening illuminates the horizon
    Our love is a memory
    A whisper on the currents of the wind
    A song the birds once sang so sweetly
    Until the icy, clear snapping of my heart
    Is heard in the space of infinite silence
    Loving you is like an all consuming flame
    Dancing in the shadows of my soul
    Sadness threatens my sanity
    So my flame begins to flicker
    Slowly melting down to the last vestige of light
    I hold on to the stars
    Cry out to the heavens
    Hoping the angels deliver my cries to the ear of the Creator
    That he may give me one more moment
    To treasure your smile
    To feel your lips pressed warm as silk against my forehead
    To feel your body strong, smooth, and supple against mine
    To feel the slick heat and oily sheen
    Of our rhythm drip in liquid ecstasy down the center of my spine
    To feel you inside of my Universe
    Rotating on the axis of my planets
    Colliding with the comets
    We sing a song of infinity
    In your eyes I have found the beauty of sun rises
    Known the gentle peace of deep rivers
    Inhaled the fragrant scent of secret gardens
    Flourishing with velvet red roses
    Each on as flawless in perfection as our love once was
    Now Time has stolen our passion
    We have arrived at this barren place
    Where our souls depart in the silver showers of despair
    Pouring in roaring torrents
    I close my tearing eyes
    Helpless as I surrender
    To the rage of our love storm
