    Theodora was his wife………..Empororer Justinian's

    A true woman, a woman of culture, of class. What would our Emperor be wiithout her? Theodora was a QUEEN. A true leader. Some of us will never forget her contributions.

    Unforbidden shadows of you formed yesterday
    I ran away to a room here on the bay
    Interrupted life again, another new beginning
    Where the silence echoes
    You're no longer with me

    Here and now
    I feel that I'm embracing freedom
    Even though I may be alone
    But that's okay

    Through the darkness
    I would walk in the streets
    Confessions never seemed
    To provide me with a release
    Held me down and tried to cure me
    Tried to give me reason
    But nothing could sepearate
    This burdened mind from me

    Here and now
    I feel that I'm embracing freedom
    Even though I may be alone, but that's okay
    Looking out to a different sky will disengage me
    Absence is never the answer, I know
    But it serves as my shade

    I do not seek and not intend to find
    A calmer ocean or a sun that'll never rise
    My world will never change
    And time will bring you to my thoughts
    I'll move on and forget you all over again
    Moving on, I can forgive you all over again

    Here and now
    I feel that I'm embracing freedom
    Even though I may be alone, but that's okay
    And looking out onto a different sky
    It seems so easy
    Absence is never the answer, I know
    But it serves as my shade

    The sadness of this song, stong feelings of loneliness, when when a life full of breakups becomes unbearable, there´s no other way to go on living and starting a new begining.Oh Bizantium you´re so long ago in time…it remembers me a love story at medieval.

    This song sounds Vedic (Byzantium). I remember when I first bought this album I thought the last track Amongst the Ruins was actually called 'A Poem for Byzantium". It's a beautiful juxtapositioning: Listen to it straiight through then see the last track as 'Poem' then realize it was the actual 'Poem' song. I always think of a old female traveler dying in the slums of New Delhi or Calcutta as the last real remnant of a dying civilization. Amazing.
