Stranger then you dreamt it . . .Magpie Tales #11

The grand chandelier fell, killing one
now lurking in the shadows secret and strange
A pitiful  figure in the shadows, whose face hides behind a mask
 The one called the Angel of Music-
Will you still play music dear Angel, when the rest of us are dead?

When I am fast asleep in my bed
the Angel of Music sings songs in my head --
tenderly  he whispers his deeds as well as his love for me,
and I am secretly possessed by his voice in my head
singing softly and calling me by my name

Dare I dream again? for I find
The Phantom of the Opera is there, inside my head... 
Angel! I hear you --   come to me, come to me now -
for the night is long and my soul is weak.

Angel sing your song so sweet the one that revives my heart,
from the harshness of the daytime light..
Sing  your song and  stay by my side,
As I close my eyes and give way to my darkest dreams
and abandon my defenses
letting my spirit soar to a world I knew not before

Thus the Angel of Music sings out to me in my dreams
and to the gentle and forgiving stars,
"Touch me, trust me, savour each sensation!
Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in
To the power of the music that I write
The power of the music of the night...
You alone can make my song take flight
Help me make the music of the night..."

Hide from me no longer, show me who you are
strange and secret Angel of  the night
Then sweet child you shall know me,
See the secret life I hide
"Look at your face in the mirror, I am there inside"
 Angel of Music,I have been  mislead. 
I blindly followed the thoughts you planted in my head.
Angel then it was true you were secretly lurking in the shadows -
it was no phantom ghost but you 
Spying on  Raoul and I in a lovers embrace.
with your Red Cape flailing in the wind and 
the tall Silver Tipped Cane glistening in the candle light,
Whilst, I thought it was a dream of sparkling starlight send
by the Angel of Music singing in the night..

Stranger then your dreams  you devil woman - 
Damn you - Damn you! look what you have done.
Thus revealed a  frightening man-- the monster that I really am .
Do not shield your eyes  for this is your fate for now you have lost your freedom
Have pity, for you will learn to love the man behind this mask as you have done before in your head.

The poor despised creature was tracked down by her lover--
beaten with his own Silver Tipped Cane to death.
