As the moon argues with clouds

In winter’s tormented sky

A frail life lingers in the shadows

Waiting for deaths hello

To glide over the river of Styx

On the spirit ofhis funeral swan.

.

Through frosted windows,

A whispered orb appears

Hovering over mortal conscience

Mirrored in masked apparitions,

Around the candles flicker.

.

Voices fill the room

Calling the cemeteries dead

Calling witness to this passing

And In the Rocking chair a figure

.

Speaking, plumes of mist

Looking from a dark abyss

Where once there was a face,

The scratching of a Quill,

Writing, moving across a veil of grey,

Hiding the pages beneath

.

The quill of mankind

Is Here to empty your soul,

Though your heart will try and hide,

The truth,

The person that is you.

.

For in his wisdom

Creation gave you a conscience

And that will always betray

This person that was you

.

And another testimony is done

In the trial of Mankind
