Absinthe Pt 3: Requiem

A faded amaranth on corrupted design,
Begging for memory of shady decline,
The poet and riddler rise from the east,
Twisting in cobweb a decadent priest,
Pegasus saviour, a call from the dark,
Heart of a wolf bears a crystalline mark,
Bridge to the hollow, a spherical dawn,
Wielding Excalibur the terrible pawn,
In soul ravaged grief, a dangerous mind,
Terrified dragon tears left far behind,
Landscape lost beauty falls into fire,
The soothsayer exclaims the snow-white pyre,
Lecherous oceans cease blazing fall,
Phoenix enticing death-defying call,
Absinthe and opium speakers of lust,
Winter assassin crumbling to dust,
Tomb of a saviour, carpenters fear,
Song of a troubadour, treacherous tear,
Destroyer of heartbeats lurks in the clouds,
Haven of Griffins in perilous shrouds,
Vampiric desire of bloodletting nights,
Thunder strands dance in red Northern Lights,
Coal black sin feeds on lies and deceit,
Raven eyes reflect as the serpents entreat,
An unholy sorcerer in the desert of pain,
Castle of discord, the titanic domain,
The emerald nymph begs for respite,
A nightmarish follower seethes in delight,
Forbidden love trembles in dark wings,
Succubus pleasures as the last Siren sings,
Secretive geisha whispers the sign,
Battle between centaurs, overflowing wine,
An ice empress rides in a chariot of gold,
Sons of rebellion let mystery unfold,
The Trinity reveals a Nephalim sword,
Crying for mercy as fate is ignored,
Fire of phantoms who plead to be seen,
Shiver through mists and murder the queen,
Believing the tales of a melancholy child,
Living the ecstasy of a hunter beguiled,
Sensual pain of a first broken heart,
Clouded by rhymes when hope tears apart,
Brittle yellow pages of a diary half gone,
Feline devotion to the crooning black swan,
Villainous memory awake in the light,
Fortress of silver caressing the night,
Tremulous sprite wishes bringer of dreams,
Spinning in nightmare, a harbour of screams.
