Azura Nightsong

Death's Embrace

The splattered blood across the scene

Is painting wraiths upon her pallor

 The nectar of her life pooling out

Trickling with the steady sands of time

Causing her to fade to winter

The fireplace within long since extinguished 

Her mouth agape in prayer half spoken

Cut to an end by the cold slide of steel

Unblinking glass staring at the end of all things

The windows to eternity now closed from the frost

In the abandoned house where a lively soul once dwelled

Gracing her lips with one last whisper

To invite her wandering spirit back

Just left with the bitter tang of rejection

For she was tempted to his bed

And now lies within death's embrace.
