Midnight in the realm of Good and Evil

Spread the love

469481

Midnight in the realm of good and evil when thus
clock begins to chime; of ragged stars and restless
thoughts merging betweenย clandestine clouds. Lo!
our mind wanders to unknown places; along with
the air in our lungs and blood in our veins. Desire,
whim, impulse, temptation beckon towards their
pier again.

Thus night howled and screamed again; creatures
both light and dark struggle to resist the inevitable
change. Theย crescent above whispered tales of gore;
through bitter storms in the height of battle. Thus
Elysium fieldsย shriveled to dust. “Lo! we’re double-
edged blades for every time we sharpen our faith,
the return stroke straps back vice again.”

Frozen eternal and cursed with blight;
The soul however is fringed with light.

  2. The term “ragged stars” is just too gorgeous. And then you top it off with this:
    … “and restless
    thoughts merging between clandestine clouds.”

    Just beautiful, Sanaa.

  13. I have been surfing on-line more than 3 hours today, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty value sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the net can be much more helpful than ever before.
