Listen to poem:
Pure girl, the fallen angel does possess
Envelops her, unwanted legacy
No way out, fighting fate is her life's test
Night’s blackest suitors are her destiny
Youth’s betrayed friend, to rescue she risks all
Dark paranormal quest, what will they find?
Redemption or damnation may befall
Endgangered soul is tortured by her mind
A lone bud may emerge in deadly bloom
Down, can she be saved by her fate’s true love?
Foul evil’s power may the world entomb
Unclean beings roil beneath, God soars above
Lost world winds to its dark and baleful end
--Last fateful choice in strong arms of a friend
