Dark steps of revelation... a dark poem

Dance

Wrap the night around you

As you dance in the light of the moon

Your feet barely touching the sparkling dew

A dark beauty breaking from the gloom


Bathed in the glow of star light

Your hands raised high

Summoning the power of the night

Into the old winter sky


Hair black as raven’s wing

Eyes glowing with ancient power

Eager for it all to begin

Finally releasing the devourer



Your dance an entrancement of terror

Laughing as chaos whips around

Drinking in the growing horror

Your steps vibrate with every screaming sound

The sweet darkness of it all

Spreads throughout the land

Led by Babylon’s new whore

Demons obeying your every command


The gates of hell spill open

To your dark entrancing song

Fulfilling words long ago spoken

Giving the world a black new dawn

The dragon hunts finally free

As the saints bleed at your feet

Bringing the faithful to their knees

As seven kings you unseat


So drink deep of your cup golden

As the dragon howls into the night

Dance the steps of the dark omen

Driving back the last of the light


Let the demons fill the sky

As the world turns to fire

The end of ends is nigh

Fuelled on by your hearts foul desire


To sit upon your bloodied throne

Babylon’s new whore queen

Beautiful with a heart of broken stone

Listening to the whole world scream

Whore of Babylon

Can I just say this was brilliant? The attention to detail that you have given in creating the aura and personality of the protagonist is amazing!

I have to admit the book of revelations was the inspiration behind this, having grown up hearing all about the end days and the mark of the beast etc...I guess it was inevitable that it would make an apperence in my writing one day :)

I am so glad that you liked it, I wasnt real sure about the title but I am thrilled it made its mark ...

thanks for the visit its always a true pleasure
