The darker the night the fewer the stars in flight,
and here he follows their tails of escape, trying to curtail the desertion.
But the love is uncertain behind the folds of his stilled curtain.
Feel his hand caress your face, under the tracing of his fingers.
He is not gone; look beside you, here is where he lingers.
Though you feel the light is done, know his songs are the cyclones
Sweeping your soul for control, in the understanding, that what is
before you is almost never as forever as what stands beside you.
And the man behind the mask has but one task at hand,
see him, be him, kill the mockery, and rise in loving memory of Victory.
