Alostrael

in quiet desperation
a looming shadow grows
spreading like a cancer
from the mouth of
dead man’s road

it climbs across the pavement
consumes a dying sun
and whispers in the ear
of the girl who
should’ve won

but the secret was pervasive
and the mystery was sincere
clinging to the answer
to the question
she had feared

she rides the silent thunder
alight upon the wind
and with a gentle hand
she bathes once more
in sin

she sings of ancient wonders
another story spins
the beast has tipped its hand
she bathes once more
in sin
