Oh, my love, 

I have fallen for you, 

Blue shades of yours

Dusted by gleaming

Reflections of the god of the sky

I shut my eyes, all I can 

Think about is you

Driven by the uncanny

Glaciers of the youngest


You give me the power to my 

Soul, mind, and body

Intertwined with the magical wind

Hailing from the river

Take your charisma into me

Ailing my abrasion
