The Gothic Embrace

It is a fire that burns cold,

Reaching into the soul

With claws that scrape and scar,

As a harmony of pleasure and pain,

Abets one to begin again.


With sorrow

Comes beauty,

Mixing as does the sun at the end,

Whose blood curdles amidst the night;

As purple and blue reunite.


A chalice fills with purpose,

Whilst incense, zephyr courts,

Alongside dreams that crystallise beyond doors

Where suspect rituals are extolled,

To fulfil fantasies even Daemons opposed.


The sigil calls a name,

Echoing through the ring of a bell

To summon she who beckons too,

Cheating Death’s bitter chase

For just one more, Gothic… embrace.
