21 (who?)
Upon clandestine fires of a midnight sky
the world of forbidding awaits the dead
We chant for our blood in Winter fields
In the feasts of the burning, I will be fed

As carmine-lovers bewail upon dark rivers
the sojourn of thorns breathes in your soul
Covet my love in the eclipse of sangomancy
in cursed lullabies you will ache to be whole

Voiceless echoes rasp over stony graves,
drifting in the requiem of a dethroned sky
If you weep thy bloodlust upon my shadow,
I will drink every solemn tear that you cry

Silence broods in the dreary mists of forever;
in courtyards and demon portraits that seek
Within gardens covered in moss and decay,
the song of gothic poison will take the weak

Spirits of the dead linger in broken twilight
The winds of Samhain rush through my veins
Griffins take flight in acid-shot dreamscapes
I will take you into the realm of scarlet rains

Ebon roses bloom upon spires of melancholy;
the legacy of sorrow will become our haven
Stagnant clouds liquefy over cobble pathways
under a waning moon, you will see the raven

Within the jeweled-flames of a Dragons rage,
dark priests carry the lanterns of gothic lore
Glistening ivy hastens upon gloomy walls;
children and widows shall soon be no more

~In this darkness there can be no light or love
within tomorrow there is only death and spite
In the shadows of gnarled trees I wait for you
Upon a gothic dawn, blood will be my rite

Your ability to weave poems and writings out of slightly eccentric words is definitely amazing.
Definitely need to spam with favourites.
