Discarded upon piles of worn shadow,

The ribbon-like fang weaves itself through its distal cacophony.

Temperance, a blind master to the walkers of the valley,

Weary, the jarred speech of white ravens mock our voyage.

 

Ponder now upon that empty crucifix,

Gripped, a hammered feverence staged through frightened hands and quick lips.

Bow before the scythe, moulder of the spirit of man,

Shuns, makes liquid the vassalating tyrant.

 

Jewels of Iscariot, fleeting notes from serpentine flutes,

Old scars, healed and forgotten,

Ripped open by pestilent sorrows,

The final toll of a forgotten creed.

 

Paradise, Purgatory, Inferno.

Kingdoms birthing and ending to the trumpets of Gabrielle.

Let us escape now to the dull edge,

Ignore the cleave of Azrael's blade.

 

Leave back the tales of brimstone,

Embrace the story of the gates.

Cast aside the myths of the halter,

Drink deep of the blessings of the chalice.

 

Dwell no more on prophecies of infernal minds,

Embrace the Final Light.
