Xerina's House


An overgrowth of vines encase this house of ancient stone
Behind sealed doors are oddities and secrets still unknown
Calamity befell the owners delving into knowledge veiled
Death approached them as their efforts deterring the horror failed
Enveloped by dark powers those who come became the paladins
Force to guard the house forever as immortal, wicked guardians
Gifts are sent to the old house to keep the spirits at bay
Homage out of fear of death; Merciless are they
Innocence is not identified by those who run the house
Just like the owners, all are taken, even the garden mouse
Keep away from Xerina’s singing, leading you down the misty roads
Life is much too precious to encounter this hell spawn foe
Malice tightly holds the house, keeping those who seek to clean,
Necromancers, Phantoms, Demons who come to us in dreams
Olive paint is cracking, peeling, falling off the house’s door
Paladins peek through windows at us, reciting long forgotten lore
Quiet, listen as they speak and tip you warnings of your fate:
“Run away from this dark land before the ageing day grows late.”
“Silence falls once sky runs red. Bridge cannot be crossed when black.”
“Timber pulls thee to the house. Spirit shall erode and crack.”
“Under spells, you can’t resist. One with house of the Abyss.”
“Serve Xerina as her slave. Vanity shall then dissipate.”
“Winds will whisper when your near.”
“Xerina’s voice shall lead you here.”
“Yearning are we for your presence.”
“Zephyr lets us taste your essence.”

I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea,
Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes;
