Earthwizard's Realms of Faërie: The Poetry of Raven

	Widow's Kiss

	Envenomed angel forgotten by the white Gods
	Love child beholden to none
	Locked in the high tower of a ruthless king
	Tainted by the love of a darkened maiden
	Enchanted by the spells cast from long dead wizards
	Never envisioning the dawn for the sake of the nocturnal lair
	Enduring the nightfall with a closed eye
	Escaping into her own little world where cobwebs reside
	Too weakened and forsaken to even try to defy
	Watching the demons grow from the tears that she cries
	Wondering how long it will take for her soul to die
	Damn the darkness that threatens to overtake
	Barely alive yet welcoming the death that she knows will come
	Cursing the high Gods that left her to this fate
	Rasping out her eternal swan song
	Building castles and chasing rainbows, the fantasies she imagined
	Slowly turned to dust
	And she knows that an end to her journey is a must
	As the tears in her eyes start to rust, she turns her eyes 
	to the heavens And calls to her pagan Goddess, sends them all to Hell
	A widow’s kiss that taught her not to trust.
