Beneath the Barrow

from by blackQueen



Wails far away echo the sound of souls devoured
born from the cold barrow, kissed by her shroud

Perplexing mix of fear and ecstacy, longing for her womb
drawn by lights of dull and sullen sorcery, down into the tomb

Soul symphonies hollow, froze stillborn
thirst for her breast hallowed, undeath adorned

Piercing thru the wind hearing the mother's call, hungry for the soul
feeding on the light of those who can't move on, her secret song unfolds.

Eyes blind, limbs tied, she came inside, i can feel her eyes, draining.

Torn, suffering the wispmother's scorn
lips pouting with poison
'So, you want to know pain?!'
tears falling like icy rain.....

'Don't hide from me!'

Then came a call, wrenching the heart
draining the soul, tearing out....

Lost in abyss, wreathed in mist
decaying rags become my armor
the song and I are one.
