This crest shattered by escaping light -
Slices strong and weathered sinew,
Covered in a river of blood.
Sundering so terribly beautiful
It could blind the eyes of angels.
Knees bent to the razorís lullaby,
Red letters seep through a hollow
That once brimmed and bounded beauty.
Sharpened steel of a last, passionless kiss
Releasing every gathered star
Back to that unreachable canopy
Of such vast, suffocating, cold.
