I search the night.
A lovely sight.
My wings are spread.
Don’t go to bed.
I see you scurry.
Don’t need to worry.
My talons reach for thee.
In the sky, you’ll soon be.
We’ll soar to my nest.
I will love you best.
I will be the last one you’ll see
before your eyes close for me.
I walk alone at night
when the moon is full height.
The sky black as tar,
but I won’t walk far.
I search for the shadow
on the road so narrow.
I want to see who he’s become,
The Dead leader, the evil one.
PREY FOR THE DEAD by Susanne Leist
Walk with me through the moonlit forest.
Let our feet graze the tips of the grass,
held aloft by our love and passion.
Follow me through the endless night
to a land where no man walks,
and love has no bounds or shackles.
We will be free to display our passion,
without retribution from humanity.
Come with me, my ice princess.
Step away from the burning plains,
where the heat burns your soles,
And love is hampered by humanity.
He extends his hand,
his lips never uttering a sound,
but his meaning as clear as can be.
The other has followed us to the clearing.
His eyes burn red with passion.
Fire follows close on his footsteps.
He scorches a trail through the tall grass,
melting his enemy’s cold path.
They face each other.
Hot and cold from opposite poles,
dueling until the end of time,
Our games have just begun.
