The Dun Raven

Claws on bough
A beak ready to serrate your eyes
Prepare your heart through ribs
Milk your stomach for liquid and fragments
Flaps of tongue

A blood darkness screws your thoughts
Clamps your softness in iron
Wires a mismatched love into ice
Drugs your light

Ugly pain stops your air
Just sleep
Break this year like a bottle

You spent your time
Over his house
Under the illusion you'd
Find peace and love
Until you saw that his
Cuddles and
Kisses were
Inundated with
Greed. Please don't
Come back, even though I'm
Useless without you.

No second chance for you not
This time.
