Visceral Fears

Wordpress Promt - visceral

I bow my head at what I’ve become,

 deep, dark death, a fallen one

oozing onyx blood and tears

presaging deathly fears

on winged journey

from a bedimmed army

I arrive dripping tears,

onyx daggers icing prayers

crescent wings enfolding visceral fears

we depart together

immortal soul and dark angel

to another sphere

    1. Hahaha! Not really. The picture actually captured my attention and I wondered why she was bent over and took the story from there. I needed a deviation from the ordinary today. 🙂
