Crimson Tears…….. 8/21/08
He embraced her with a chilling knowing life was ending for her now,
Shadows hung about them in the still night air death calling I am here.
Time moments frozen encircling them both frightened screams echo through the darkness,
Crimson blood begins to flow about her neck cascading beyond the auburn tresses wet
Embers crackle from the dim lit fire as dust settles upon his boots scarlet revealing evil intentions,
Quiet almost silent air replaces the faint sounds of life draining away into the red circle.
Drowning, choking maiden struggles freedom is revoked blackness gripping her listless entity,
Raven in black lady sleeps her final dream as the strong smell of clay fall on her last resting place
