Immolation of Endymion


Blades of vengeance
Plunging in to abyssal depths
Of sculpted bronze
Of a tempestuous Adonis
In a concoction of wrath and abhorrence
For the prince in shining armor
Transmuted to the sable Lucifer
As the pledge of marriage
Evaporated like a miasmas
As a broken promise
Entrenched
To a blissful ordination of blood
In the rite of spring
Metamorphosed to
A juggernaut of pure odium
To the act of immolation
Of the beauty of Endymion
