Street lanterns flicker as you trudge with your ivory feet.
Your wretched and writhing halo contorted pure lilies.
The very core of darkness makes home your lifeless eyes.
Your body creaks hauling itself to your primordial vice.
You sink your teeth in raw meat of the ancestral sage.
Sour blood drips as you lavishly gulp your days.
Language dies in shame uttered by your sinister tongue.
Dreams fade out to nightmares and the world becomes undone.
