Night Herself.

By ShadowWalker

 Adorned by Night herself,
Frozen lips eternally pursed,
Blood drenched diamonds are her wealth,
Violins string the ancient curse..

I bow and break, shudder and tear!
Surrendering to the onslaught of agony,
Hair tangled and no longer fair,
This is the demise that was destined to be..

Rainbows of darkness and spider,
Weaver and thimble,
A grin matched by Hell's fire,
Lost is the perfection of nimble..

This very Day's death,
I open my wrist in offering,
To take my breath,
End my suffering..

This war, this slaughter,
It is born to tease!
Allow me to die as Your faithless daughter..

Tattooed serpent along my spin,
Night yawns her indifference,
My soul I give to you, for it was never truly mine,
Signature scribbled with bloody finger prints..

Midnight opens her thighs,
Diluted is my brain,
Stilling my heart beat the official prize,
My demise is final with the fall of crimson rain.

    I believe I promised to drop by these parts to withness more of your exquisite taste of poetry so here I am again an amazed. This was beautifully written as is but I caught something I'm not sure if you really intended to use the word "stealing" or "stilling" in the 2nd to last line in the last stanza of this write, but I will say this I love the last line, "My demise is final with the fall of crimson rain" simply beautiful. Thank you so much for dropping by and paying me a visit, it's always nice to meet new faces on here so thank for that and for sharing this with us and as always take care of yourself =)

    Great flow, beautifully written. There is alot of deep emotions within you. Hope you'r not actually thinking of suicide. Keep writing, it helps.
