behind every madness

lies the shadow of angels

waiting for your sleep

so that they may sing

the black longing note

stuck in the distance

between silence and sound

out loud

A beautiful piece, Ghost of Heino.
Convention speaks of demons in relation to madness, so I find your 'shadow of angels' a refreshing perspective. For me, their song sounds as a dream of longing, but that is a very personal interpretation.
I see this is '1' and I look forward to further ballads.
