Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Music Prompt# 68 “Elysian Night” by Draconian

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another exciting week at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, this is Sanaa Rizvi, your kind hostess this week with a music video that’s bound to make your hearts throb.

I realized during a heart to heart conversation with a fellow blogger and friend the impact and significance of sharing feelings and emotions with one another; because in the end it’s what gets us through life with its never-ending journey of hurdles and tasks. My heart literally flew out to her as both of us listened and contemplated the immensely beautiful and poetic lyrics of the song.

I want you guys to let loose, and write down your deepest feelings which have long been hidden inside. The prompt is wide open to interpretation. And now without further ado, here’s presenting this week’s song choice:

I am so far away…
You see, I’m nothing without thee
I fall down, down to the ground,
and all alone, I wish that I could go

Drown here with me,
hold me, save me

Are you there, beloved one?
I clench our whisper to the fading
Playing out the frozen dream
to watch me bleed in the sunrise
watch me bleed in the sunrise

Break, can you see how I break,
and still, my world remains the same
Don’t die, please stay awhile
This night we’ll learn how to fly

Snow is falling from ebon skies
and I see some peace in your eyes
Playing out the frozen dream
to watch me bleed in the sunrise
watch me bleed in the sunrise

I can’t go on with the quiet,
to wait until we wake up,
to be gone with the fire
I must go now

Darkling I listen; and, for many a time
I have been half in love with easeful Death,
Call’d him soft names in many a mused rhyme,
To take into the air my quiet breath;
Now more than ever seems it rich to die,
To cease upon the midnight with no pain

Drown here with me,
hold me, save me

Are you there, beloved one?
I clench our whisper to the fading
Will you help me carry on,
and lead me through the sunrise?
Lead me through the sunrise

I can’t go on with the quiet,
to wait until we wake up,
to be gone with the fire
I must go now
