that was morbid but i'm really proud of it

by any name

something flying
something free
perfect endings
call to me

dance into the fire
dip into the light
taste the ash in the air
what a brilliant plight

crimson stains
dripping tears
a silver dagger
forged with fears

dragged into the deep
quick to sink
swirling waters
drowned in a blink

tainted fame
death comes in many forms
a rose by any name
has bloody thorns

    Darkly beautiful. I especially love that last stanza.
