I'll leave this one for the readers to define for themselves...

Sacrifice

 


Land of dream and mist,


Virginís harsh and fragile kiss.


 


Forged of copper and of stone,


Caring not for blood or bone.


 


Lulled through mirrors of a past,


Seductive gifts, before you cast.


 


Suckle at the laden breast,


Restless spirit long repressed.


 


Shafts to pierce deep within,


Anticipation of desired sin.


 


Thrust upon the desert bare,


Humbled at the Devilís lair.


 


Echoes of a promise made,


Blood and sacrifice, before you lay.


 


Dark regent, as of death,


Take your last and lonely breath.

Very interesting. I think Felix Perry caught the atmosphere here just right. I could almost hear the dragon's breath behind me. Ecks. Thoroughly enjoyed. Liz

Almost druidic sounding tale of gloom and doom and can almost picture the dragaons smouldering in the hidden caves above the forest.
