Magick in the Night

Views: 202
Comments: 0
My queen lies awake at night
The maddening screams are far too much to bear
Her mind is lost, now her kingdom pays the price

The king, dead since last Christmas eve
can have no hand in the choices the are made
All hope is gone, see the magick in the night

(Through my inception I seethe defection
to thine holiest peoples of Sin.
Yet no harm shall I cause with neigh tooth nor claw
from the beast burning wretched within.)


Our kind, of runes and pentagrams
are shunned away as wicked infidels
The masses rage, like rats to be encaged
"His victim's blood will stain our lands no more."

Far and away, I hear the words they say
They want my head though I keep them safe at night
"Is there a cure, to make my body pure?"
My only chance is the Wizard in the North.

This darkness inside me
Shadow that none can see
Love me, Fear me
Draw near before you flee
This rage unleashed
A bitter, violent beast
Remorse but no contrite
Magick in the Night

Unaccompanied, I leave behind my greed
Outside the walls are beasts like those within
They scratch and gnaw, a thousand shadowed claws
Into the woods I flee from hatred's form.

Not far from town, I spot the faded crown
His majesty returns in spirit's shape
With troubled mind, his words he cannot find
although he knows the worry in his heart

Wasting away, I see the ghost decay
I speak my words yet the spirit hears its own
The spirits speech, ever out of reach
We shall'nt converse in his never-ending night.

This darkness inside me
Shadow that none can see
Love me, Fear me
Draw near before you flee
This rage unleashed
A bitter, violent beast
Remorse but no contrite
Magick in the Night

In icy lands, here I stand at last
The wizard's spire seemed unreachable
Through icy winds and snow, I see the sky aglow
The frozen north is not the realm of man

After I take my leave, flesh marked and pins in me
I feel the cold but the hunger is no more
the light of day, no longer seals my fate
but will steel and soot encur the wrath of man?

Cured I am and to home I go
As I approach I hear the whispered worm
Like a disease, the words spread of me
heroic deeds have not undone their scorn

So now I leave, but with me goes their shield.


Through many years I see
Kingdom into debris
Before the sea
a land of misery
My solitary feat
The last but not the least
Kingdom without a king
Towers stand crumbling

This darkness inside me
Shadow that none can see
Love me, Fear me
Draw near before you flee
This rage unleashed
A bitter, violent beast
Hatred and spite
claimed more than the magick in the night
