Requiem for the undead

Requiem for the undead

27 August 2014


Pale flame flickering

Shadow upon shadow cast

In cold of twilight

A chest heaves in the darkness

Of feelings woven in stone


Listless eyes follow

The reaper in slow motion

As he glides across

A starless night breathes sorrow

Into a beckoning sky


Lips split in prayer

Moonlit night calling to dawn

Talks of frozen end

The mind stilled by starless glaze

Hovers above thoughtless form


Heartbeat feels its way

Sinuous through veins alit

With nucleus blue

Eye meets eye dispassionate

Seething waves of forgiveness


Spirits locked we chant

As sun breaks into darkness

A bright song unseen

Requiem for the undead

A soul free from heart of lead
