Downtempo Rituals
Ka:lu – Summer Solstice

As the sun wraps his arms around the moon,
She craves his touch like it’ll be gone too soon.
The warmth he gave was burning her skin
Caressing her very soul within
As they eclipse and darken the bright sky
She can’t help but wonder why
After all this time, she’s been waiting for him
But now it’s here, it’s not as good as it seem
Because as the clock starts to tick
Her insides start to feel sick
Soon the eclipse will be over
Leaving her mind with more thoughts to hover
As his lights touch her darkness,
She found herself in another madness
What craziness has fate brought
To let them eclipse for only a thought.
