    dotsDoveflight: A Preludedots

    Her soul it fled this world then,
    Flying on otherworldly winds of night
    Her soul in blood-stained plumage then
    Flew from this world in a blur of white

    Her eyes shone like sapphires bright
    Upon that cursed, god-poisoned night
    If she'd only had the sense to flee
    Before she dissolved into the light

    I thought that I had seen it all:
    I've seen battles fought on my shores
    Seen sailors frolick with their whores
    And the spoils of many bloody wars
    Were spilled just before me

    But there she stood, dressed all in light
    Glowing like the moon above
    Her very smile breaking the night
    Waiting in hope for her "true love"

    Glittering not half as well
    Were the jewels on her throat and arms
    Much gold and rubies, I could tell
    If she wasn't careful, she'd come to harm

    And so her beau came, cloaked in black-
    An odd color in which to elope
    With him he carried a small canvas sack
    Tied loosely at the neck with some rope

    She beamed wider still as he came close
    Her joy seemed to outshine the moon
    And her blue eyes glittered full of tears
    Reflecting light as if of noon

    His face was stone-well, I'd thought
    Perhaps he is that kind of man
    Ever brooding over his lot
    In life-such people can
    Attract the lasses more than a dandy.

    She waited for the one she loved
    He moved, then, as if to embrace
    His hand then went to his side
    Withdrew a dagger, drove it into the lace

    And there she fell, all dressed in white
    I felt my torrents turn to ice
    He slashed her, more, with all his might
    And she dropped like some pagan sacrifice

    From off her neck he took the chain
    And took her bracelets gold
    As she stumbled up, screaming in pain
    He dissapeared into the black

    She walked, then crawled, calling out
    But no one came to aid the maid
    Then with one last mangled shout
    She fell on the rocks, Charon's fee paid

    Her blood my waves lapped up that night
    And her tears, I did as well
    Then, a sister heard of the poor bride's plight
    And I predicted a raising of Hell.

    In millenia I've never seen such love
    And never seen it so betrayed
    Her soul fled this world like a dove
    White and red as the dress in which she was slain
