Wrath of the Damned

By Damon Tarloth

 
All Hallows Eve is when the ritual will begin,
The night comes but once in a 1000 years,
For the stars to be align,
Blood from someone void of sin,
Tears from their tainted twin...

A fallen priest to perform the satanic rites,
Bones from man and beast alike,
A consecrated dagger used in an exorcism,
Desecrated with the blood of children...

The final part to seal this act,
To create this demon and complete the pact,
When the clock strikes the witching hour,
The heart of the righteous you must devour,
This holy man on the brink of death,
Must renounce his god with his final breath...

A horrific sight as your body contorts,
Tears, crimson pours everywhere,
The ghastly change from human to this demonic form,
Both skin and humanity are shed as you are reborn...

No pity, empathy, or remorse,
Hunger is its driving force,
After feeding and becoming full,
Next is to spread, divide, conquer, and control...

If bitten, one of them you soon will be,
Through your eyes they can choose to see,
You live only to serve and obey,
Your thoughts, your will, controlled completely...

It only takes one of these blood thirsty damned,
To dominate, pillage, and rape the land,
Legions of death it will sire,
As man is devoured by the demon called... Vampire...

This stanza was recently removed:

Its bite will change you into one of them,
They are your everything,
You live to serve and obey,
Your thoughts, your will, controlled completely...

And replaced with:

If bitten, one of them you soon will be,
Through your eyes they can choose to see,
You live only to serve and obey,
Your thoughts, your will, controlled completely...

I think it's better... If you disagree let me know.
