Wildling



I could take your hand

Wildling

But you'd lead me astray

With Will-o'-Wisp delight

Eternal desire

For something more than this life

Pique my fascination

Fuel my ire


I could follow you

Darkling

Into lands unknown

Taste forbidden fruits

Bid this world adieu

But not until I've extracted

A single promise from you


I will go hither

Sweetling

If you'll secure me your heart

We'll walk the space Between

In ethereal ecstasy

Until we're but a tale

A fanciful nighttime reverie
