Sweet silhouette defined in pain

Humanity’s lace

You’d writhe and struggle again

Quiet encroaches

Deafen only by screams

Brotherhood shouts

As wraiths calling in teams

Earth and worms

And the centuriarch falls

No tears

Ignorance prompted in all

Oh obscurity

A creeping forgetfulness

Taint sanctity

And seeping listlessness

Blind memory

Of a world that grants one wish

To be a real boy

To be a man

One will die in the dark

At his own hand
