Opera of the Raven

I fly Blood flows like a river below I dance Scattered bones I dance Crows feast on dead souls I dance The moon becomes full The night becomes a stage The curtain drops I sing Capella from the chapel of the stars Andante so they all die a slow painful death Inert bodies pile under the stage I fly away

This is a poem of a dark sinsister moody flavor, almost to despairing, my friend but your imagery is outstanding, though we need the dark as well as light poetry, it's almost becoming a lost art so we must keep poetry alive at all costs for the future and we need poets of your quality to teach others to come this dying art. I wanted to answer your comments, The stage was written for an old native legend I read about years ago, I think I nailed it. lol
