Beyond the Reign of Terror,
Beyond the tyranny,
A silence lingers just offshore
Like fog upon the sea.

Is it death? Or is it
A future yet unknown?
Or is it in one's flooded heart
A longing all one's own?

It is eternal hope,
A peace that has no when,
Hanging just offshore, beyond
One's brutal mise-en-scène.
