A Poem by Emily Shade


A cold wind sundered the hellfire,
The souls were starved and despised;
A hellfire, as of a wraith's tomb,
Hid crypt from view.

The wraiths screamed on the barrows
And screamed in the void,
And shook their scythes and gnashed their teeth,
And threatened with their foul claws.

The night strange, the creatures arose;
The creature's destroyed eyes
Turned slowly to his loathed sea,
And wrath was eternal!
