Listen!

The raven screams of a death foretold

Come, spirits, make full my heart

With the direst design

Still, my blood, stiff & cold, 

Flows not and dams the flow

of remorse

Let nothing stand in the way

of my desire

Suckle me and nurture, 

Though not with mother's milk, but

With deadly intent and malice

Shroud yourselves, in colors light

For underneath, the darkest vapors

of malevolence fester

and clamour for release

Quiet now!
