Poetic Creature
The ice crystals have formed
O'er this life of mine
This cretin is one of yours
But the damnations are divine

As we hand our heads and hearts
The cretin sneaks, his way into us
His hearth will destroy us
Like the fires of Oblivion

"I love you, I love you." he says
  Imitating me, whilst talking to you
For we are the broken prey
Our lives he'll toy, our souls he'll screw

Like from a Poe story or book
He'll kill us, with his wretched look
While we draw our final breath
We recite the Raven:

"And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor, Shall be lifted -- nevermore."
