The Raven's Revenge

Written by: Elaine George

There she stands 
With a gun in her hand
Black tresses 
Flowing down
Touching the back
Of a long multi-tiered
Billowing
Ruffled black gown
Surveying her kingdom
There in the mist
The beautiful Princess of death

~~~~~


The ravens that borrow 
her well-known name
Fly in a blackening sky
Piercing the night
With their screams of fright
Circling  the tomb where he lies

~~~~~

With one last look - she turns away
Remembering that fateful day
When she found him lying 
In the arms of another 
Sending her into  a rage

~~~~~

Hell has no fury 
like a women scorned
So all the prophets say
But that single tear
That falls from her eye
Knows she'll love him
Till the day---she dies

~~~~~
