33 (who?)
Incessant screams echo across weeping graves
On the winds of destiny you shall hear my call
The voice of suffering will caress your spirit,
and into my darkest nightmare, you will fall

Lush is the poison that runs beneath my skin
Your death I will sow, your blood I shall reap
My dark thoughts swoon into a song of decay
In the pitch of iniquity you will gently sleep

I will awaken upon a lattice of bloody shards,
and harvest the resonance of your eternal cries
In a field of black roses you will find my soul,
together we shall walk through bleeding skies

I stand before you in the harbor of madness,
shimmering like a dry beacon of waiting death
Drink from the burning rivers of sinful torrents,
weep in the fiend lucidity of my aching breath

Our charred tears will dance in morbid splendor
Take rest in the crucified symmetry of my desire
Seething melancholy ebbs into your sullen veins,
like a host of livid thorns lavished in black fire

As my emptiness lingers in the arms of misery,
I become a silhouette in the realm of the undead
The ornament of sacrifice falls into your shadow,
upon this pathway, only the wicked will tread

Wallow in the dreamscape of my cruel alchemy,
journey in the lonely ambiance of endless hate
I see our mortality withering on a distant shore,
as our blood flows into a dark sea of bitter fate

Our memories wail in the sediment of nightfall
I will devour your soul upon the tide of sorrow
Let us ascend into the abyss of eternal darkness,
for in my dead soul, there will be no tomorrow

For the love of my Queen

This poem is exquisite! Not going to lie, when I started reading it I honestly thought, 'Oh no it's an emo poem!' But it is so much more. There's intense passion in every line and the imagery is striking - I can imagine someone performing this on stage :)

passion I put into it, fantastic! Thanks so much :)
