Amour Fou

In Madness’ wide shore
I am calmed

Bathed in the raucous light
That extinguishes the mind

I in delight
Where others sorrow

What is seen from outside
Is the pain of tomorrow

But mad love is always
Of today
And knows not minutes nor hours

The years
Waltz carefully in a magic circle
Enchanted by the heart
Eyes turned towards the tower
Challenging the dark
