Velvet And Bone

by Stag Hare

Mirror 10:15
You are resounding thunder You are waterfalls You are crystal Floating As a dream In blankets of stargazers You will never know You are acres of blackberries Just wants to grow Wants to grow You are wind in autumn You are the sea with fog You are anciently growing You are blue feather In the sun Dolphins moonlit Thien liesson You are a thousand years In past and future Ghost Avalon Wants to grow
Shadow 09:39
There is a place Where all of the people Going to and they gonna die They lay themselves In an all black coffin And float away away away Like the crows That caw at my window Like the feathers That they drop at my door I wake me up And I often wander Walking down to the river bank shore I look for her By the banks of that river Among the rocks And the moss and the fern I hear her voice On the sunshine whispers But I see not her fairy winged form Yes, I’m in love With a witch from the meadow Like a star that has fallen in the night Like the wind in the treetop rustle But I just find her shadow Shadow I sit me down in the dirt by the water I place my hand in its delicate stream The waters cold and the ripples That shimmer Calling forth So what does it mean? Is it me??
Locket 06:45
Moonlit 09:12
In the distant light of moonshine The waves that come Get so stoned and then I see you You are glowing You are driftwood In you I see the wolf so silent And around you clouds drifting You were anciently a river You are now flowing towards the sea On the road to Josaleigh’s In her canyon by the sea Just on the road to Josaleigh’s In a world different than this one I can see you here with me Though in the mountains and the forests I know that you must now be I will see you in the morning You are a star inside my heart On the wind I can hear you breathing You are the dreamer and the call On the road to Josaleigh’s In her canyon by the sea Just on the road to Josaleigh’s In the past a lonesome drifter but the dragons now unfurled On a trail where once I knew you I'll steal your horse your crown your pearls On the run got to travel lightly And the wind is at my back And the stars they shine down on me And I’m never looking back On the road to Josaleigh’s In her canyon by the sea Just on the road to Josaleigh’s

"Velvet and Bone is structured as a gothic fable.
It is about the act of self reflection through
knowing another.
It is about seeing the shadow and knowing the shadow.
It is about seeing death and knowing death.
It is about bones, and the way they are shaped
by the tensions put on them by various
opposing muscles.
It is about the swamps of depression.
It is about love in its most tragic and therefore
most beautiful form."
