Final Entry


Henbane in my cup I drink
Cheers to love that other think
Will never fail nor be for nought
This force for many battles fought

I saw the deer upon the hill
By cooling waters to drink their fill
Then down one fell into the flood
Tainting smooth rocks with its blood

Two men met in friendly war
Only kingdoms kept the score
Six billion met someone that day
Yet none survived to walk away

In every meadow which now does reek
Birds pluck eyes from people weak
The sky went black upon their flight
From pristine city marred by blight

I alone escaped that fate
But my heart does palpitate
Blackened pain rips through my head
Forever sleeping, forever dead
