Deep unto the mist of ages, spirits jewel worlds forsaken
A slither of fire dawns the ethos of my dreams —
for the temptress seeds wind and sea with ancient song
Emerald streams flow thru forests of exile...
Beyond the veil of time, the ravens fly dark n' long
The flesh of trees weep to rise of ebon Moon
— Nocturnal rapture, seek I with whispered lust
Under wanton falls of twilight I hath bled upon magick vine
Beneath midnight tides the Fae stir,
somewhere in the other world, my flesh becomes her wine


~Arthur Crow © 2012
Inspired by the song 'Dark Flow Rising'

Your imagery is incredible, it's amazing how well you can paint a picture with your words. Love your work, and thank you so much for the watch. The songs on your youtube are a great inspiration for fellow writers. (I'm also excited to see you're from Australia as well).

Hey thanks so much... I appreciate your thoughts on what I do.
Glad you looked at some of my vids... Issue with YouTube at the moment,
is there are slowly deleting many of my videos, (something about elements within
violating copyrights. Will re upload at some point.

Absolutely amazing imagery is coupled with a dark yet seductive tone and sets a slightly fanatical beat to the words of your poem. I do have a question though: in the fifth line you say, "beyond the veil of time, the raven's fly dark n' long" is raven's supposed to be ravens?

Amazing work ^_^
