Spread on a cold bed a pale hand lets slip a card

It was a cry of sorrow that broke the thread of enchanting thought

A spell woven heart once belonged somewhere

Now vengeful spite begotten desperate prayer

To unbind knotted bonds about the heart that caused despair

Melancholy sought sanctuary there, the glades which reach new pits in disrepair

Memory of a kiss which holds no substance, the prowess of a misty Illusion

Heavy lids, her eyes glazed as she retorts to darkness

The growl of menacing wolverine, resplendent,

He who sought to send her into screams, prowled about the walls that contained her

And when within she now wished she’d been without him

A wicked hunter and she his prey, onset nausea of faltered hope

The card which fell, The devil, whom had charmed her she now wished to dispel
